CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today that it is strengthening its commitment to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by prioritizing five goals that are directly connected with the company’s business and represent a better opportunity to contribute to the UN 2030 Agenda. These five goals are focused on the promotion of decent employment and economic growth (SDG 8); innovation and infrastructure development (SDG 9); climate change mitigation (SDG 13); environmental and ecosystem conservation (SDG 15); and the advancement of sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11). The five priority SDGs represent the greatest opportunities to contribute further and to identify new business opportunities connected with CEMEX’s business strategy, such as innovation, research and development, employability, climate change, diversity, and education, among others. In 2018, 26% of the company’s cement operations’ power supply came from renewable energy, contributing directly to four out of five of the priority SDGs. In 2019, CEMEX expects to continue embedding the UN SDGs into the business processes to create systemic change, increase engagement, promote a sense of purpose, and raise awareness among its stakeholders.
