Cemex announced that it was ranked second in the Latin American Climate Disclosure Leadership Index, a ranking compiled by CDP that recognises leading companies in the disclosure of data related to environmental and CO2 emissions performance.

Cemex earned this honour for its sound sustainability practices and its comprehensive disclosure, which earned a score of 99 out of 100 for the transparency and completeness of information provided. This is the fourth consecutive year that Cemex was included in this ranking.

“We are pleased by this ranking, which reinforces our commitment to minimise the carbon footprint of our operations,” said Vicente Saiso, Director of Sustainability of Cemex. “Sustainability is fully embedded in our business strategy and our day-to-day efforts to provide innovative building materials and solutions that satisfy the needs of a resource-constrained society.”

CDP works with market forces, including 822 institutional investors with assets of US$95trn, to motivate companies to disclose their impacts on the environment and natural resources and to take action to reduce them. CDP now holds the largest global collection of primary climate change, water, and forest risk commodities information and positions these insights at the heart of strategic business, investment, and policy decisions.
