Cemex reaffirms commitment to biodiversity protection

Cemex is participating in the thirteenth reunion of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, held in Cancun, Mexico, during December.

Within the framework of the Conference, Cemex reiterated its active role in protecting the biodiversity in our planet through the signing of the Cancun Business and Biodiversity Pledge.

Juan Romero, president, Cemex Mexico, signed on behalf of the company the pledge by which Cemex joins other signatory companies in the pursuit of concrete actions that deliver solutions for the conservation of biodiversity, its sustainable use, and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits from genetic resources.

“The business community must take an active role in the environment protection and the transition to a green economy. Thanks to the scope of our operations, Cemex is uniquely placed to generate positive impacts on biodiversity through the restoration of quarries and spaces in which we operate,” Romero said.

“An example of Cemex’s commitment to biodiversity protection is El Carmen natural reserve, with 15 years of conservation and biodiversity restoration programs. These efforts have granted El Carmen several recognitions, including the 2016 National Award of Ecological Merit, granted to the company by Mexico’s Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources last August.”

Comprised of 196 countries, the Conference of the Parties is the highest governing body of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity. In its thirteenth edition, about ten thousand participants, including representatives of the countries parties, observer countries, international organizations and others interested met to negotiate agreements and commitments that give impulse to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
