The Cemex Golani Quarry won its first beauty banner last year, and the Kadarim Quarry began competing in 2014, winning five stars in 2015.

The candidates are judged according to five different criteria: the external appearance of the quarry; the interior of the plant; safety; a sustainable approach and contribution to the community; and the employees’ welfare.

Elements like access for the disabled, gardens and greenery, equipment for noise and dust prevention, energy-saving lighting and air conditioning, as well as water management and control systems, helped these Cemex quarries garner their stars.

In 2015, three Cemex quarries were honored in the Council for a Beautiful Israel competition

In 1968, Aura Herzog, the widow of former Israeli President Chaim Herzog, formed the Council for a Beautiful Israel, established by senate vote. It is a non-profit organization focused on the country´s urban centers. According to the council, its activities are driven by the principle that “each citizen needs to take responsibility and initiative in caring for the environment, both for themselves and for future generations.”

“This is a mission that Cemex takes to heart throughout our operations around the world, and in Israel, these efforts have earned recognition,” the company says.

Cemex has participated in the industrial category of tghe council’s yearly “Beauty & Sustainable Industry in a Beautiful Israel” competition since 2010. In 2015, three of its quarries took part in the competition, and all were honored.
