It’s not hard to find folks at our company with ties that stretch back generations, often with parents and grandparents who’ve worked the same job. Over the years, the biggest change has been modern environmental technology and techniques. Listed alongside Google and SpaceX as one of Fortune’s 50 companies changing the world, Cemex has pioneered the use of cleaner and greener alternative fuels, such as recycled waste and peanut shells. Using only a small percentage of our land for our operations, we’re also able to leave thousands of acres in a natural state. Like most folks, we’ve learned to care for the land better with each passing generation—so that we can protect it for every generation to come.
Our Brooksville operations—which include a cement plant, aggregate quarry, and ready-mix facility—enjoy a long local history, stretching back more than four generations.
At Cemex, environmental stewardship is embedded in everything we do. Our work with the Wildlife Habitat Council and Florida Audubon, along with our sponsorship of Cemex’s local Environmental Education Center, are all reflections of our commitment to environmental protection.
Cemex was listed alongside Fitbit, Ecolab, Intel and Whole Foods as one of Fortune’s top 50 “Change the World” companies that are “doing well by doing good.” For us, doing good means acting locally…
Our most essential resource does not come from the ground, but from the communities in which we operate: our employees.
