Cemex Latam Holdings (CLH) announced today it expects to participate in the construction of approximately 12,000 sustainable housing units in Latin America during 2014, the company said in a statement.

CLH will use innovative construction systems and specialty concrete products that contribute to increase energy efficiency translating into reduced energy costs for the families living in these houses. Additionally, these specialty concrete products help to optimize the use of natural resources by reducing water consumption in the construction process. The company will also continue working on its social programs focused on sustainable self-construction like Patrimonio Hoy and Bloqueras Solidarias.

Carlos Jacks, CEO of CLH, said: “We are committed with the development of our region and are convinced that by promoting the construction of sustainable housing we are fostering well-being and creating value for all of our stakeholders”.
