Cemex Panama awarded environmental management recognition

Cemex’s Panamanian operations has been awarded the highest recognition in sustainable development and environmental management by the Panamanian Chamber of Construction.

Cemex Panama earned this honor for its implementation of protection and conservation policies in the environments where the company operates.

The Panamanian Chamber of Construction panel of judges included engineers, architects, developers, governmental officials, and scholars. The award criteria included companies’ environmental policies, energy and water efficiency, waste management, and handling of chemical substances; air pollution mitigation; environmental controls and records; environmental contingency plans; and reforestation plans.

Cemex Panama obtained this recognition thanks to such initiatives as its Technological Innovation Project based on P+L Systems, which resulted in energy savings of 32% at its cement plant; its Reduction of Water Consumption Project, which helped reduce its water consumption by over 35% at its cement plant; its waste management and waste-water treatment policies; and its Reforestation Project, which will enable the recovery of 63.3 hectares of forest by 2019.

The Panamanian Chamber of Construction is a non-profit organization that aims to promote, develop, protect, and defend the activities of Panama’s construction industry.
