Texan by Nature has once again recognized Cemex USA for its leadership in conservation and sustainability by naming it a TxN 20 honoree for the fifth consecutive year.
“One of our most rewarding achievements is seeing the positive environmental impact Cemex has on the communities where we operate,” said Jerae Carlson, senior vice president of sustainability, communications and public affairs for Cemex’s U.S. operations. “Our support of environmental initiatives is an ongoing effort that’s part of our responsibility and commitment to these communities. As we continue finding new ways to take care of the world around us, this recognition is another stepping stone in raising the standard for outstanding ecological stewardship.”
Cemex implements various programs to support land conservation and habitat restoration efforts, including a 27,000-acre ecological corridor at the Texas-Mexico border, managed by the El Carmen Land and Conservation Company. The building materials producer also maintains the 33-acre Balcones Dry Comal Creek Wildlife Habitat Center (Cemex Nature Center) at its Balcones operations in New Braunfels, Texas, which features native landscaping, habitat conservation areas, and raised garden beds.
Since 2011, Texan by Nature has been working with the state’s business community to implement Texas-led conservation practices, with their TxN 20 recognizing the best and most innovative work in conservation.
