Cemex accepting proposals on sustainable development

Cemex says it has received more than 600 proposals for its Cemex-Tec Award and is accepting entries on sustainable development from entrepreneurs and social innovators until 31 May.

The winning projects will gain access to funding, specialised workshops, and networking spaces.

Martha Herrera, corporate director of social responsibility at Cemex, says: “We are pleased that our second global call for high-impact projects has given us the opportunity to strengthen and reinforce our innovative connection with more than 30 countries on four continents in terms of shared value and social innovation, offering us the ability to contribute to the great global challenges established in the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”

The Cemex-Tec Award 2019 is divided into four categories:

  • Transforming Communities, aimed at undergraduate and graduate students with community sustainable transformation proposals.
  • Social Entrepreneurs, aimed at entrepreneurs with projects that solve social problems and encourage systemic change, with potential to become a social business.
  • Community Entrepreneurship, aimed at organisations, foundations, cooperatives or civil associations with productive projects of social transformation.
  • Collaborative Action, aimed at organisations with social impact projects implemented through multi-sectorial partnerships.

The company says the Cemex-Tec de Monterrey Center for Sustainable Development has received 2,700 registered proposals from 44 countries in America, Europe, Africa, and Asia since the award’s inception. Overall, 99 projects won awards benefiting 73 communities through social enterprises.
