10 CEMEX USA facilities earn Conservation Certification from Wildlife Habitat Council

Ten CEMEX USA facilities have earned Conservation Certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) for 2017 in recognition of programs and projects that demonstrate excellence in the areas of wildlife habitat enhancement and restoration, as well as conservation education.

The Kosmos Cement Plant in Louisville, Ky., received WHC’s highest certification level, gold-tier certification. The WHC recognized CEMEX’s FEC Quarry, Brooksville South operations, 474 Sand Mine and Gator Sand Mine in Florida with silver-tier certification. CEMEX’s cement plants in Demopolis, Ala., Knoxville, Tenn. and Lyons, Colo. were designated as certified. CEMEX’s Miami Cement Plant/SCL Quarry and Lake Wales Sand Mine in Florida achieved certification as well. The new recognitions reflect CEMEX’s collective works in conservation with all CEMEX USA cement plants having WHC-certified programs.

“CEMEX is truly committed to fostering robust environmental initiatives and pursuing sustainable business practices, so it’s a real honor to have our facilities’ efforts recognized by the Wildlife Habitat Council,” CEMEX USA President Ignacio Madridejos said.

CEMEX’s onsite conservation projects vary in scope from large-scale habitat restoration to individual species management and community engagement. Each year, thousands of students, educators and other guests use CEMEX’s habitat areas as outdoor classrooms for hands-on learning activities, building essential knowledge of key environmental concepts and conservation efforts at CEMEX.

“These outstanding projects and programs are prime examples of the positive influence and impact that corporate conservation can have on biodiversity, local communities and employees,” said WHC President Margaret O’Gorman.

The Wildlife Habitat Council promotes and certifies habitat conservation and management on corporate lands through partnerships and education. Through a focus on building collaboration for conservation with corporate employees, other conservation organizations, government agencies and community members, WHC programs focus on healthy ecosystems and connected communities.
