Cemex has announced its Panama Norte plant has received a responsible sourcing certification from the Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC). The CSC grades building materials facilities on environmental, social and governance practices throughout supply chains.
Cemex says the plant met the CSC requirements as confirmed via an audit by SGS, an independent, third-party certification body.
Andres Jimenez, president of Cemex Panama, says: “We are committed to foster our leadership in the industry by delivering a superior customer experience and integrating sustainability into all aspects of our business.”
The CSC was launched in 2017 by 11 founding members which include the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the Portland Cement Association and Cemex. The council aims to improve the transparency of the concrete sector and highlight the role of concrete in creating a sustainable construction sector by getting recognition in green procurement policies and building rating systems.
