Cemex USA has been recognised by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for its ongoing commitment to sustainability and land stewardship with the 2017 Lone Star Land Steward Award for the Trans Pecos Ecoregion.

The award recognises Cemex, the El Carmen Land & Conservation Co LLC and part owner of the ECLCC, Josiah Austin, for their dedication to excellence in wildlife and natural-resource management through work in Texas at the El Carmen Nature Reserve, a private trans-boundary conservation area in the Big Bend region that comprises five different ecosystems and is home to a myriad of plants, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.

“Cemex wants to ensure we preserve the unique landscape at El Carmen, and we strive for sustainability in everything we do,” Cemex USA’s Regional President-Texas Region, Scott Ducoff said. “We are constantly committed to conserving the land so species that rely on it can do so for decades to come.”

El Carmen stretches from Texas into Mexico and is the result of conservation agreements between Cemex and adjoining landowners on both sides of the border. The award from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recognises the continuing efforts to restore lands and native wildlife in the US part of El Carmen along with the commitment to protect the vital wildlife corridor and bird migration route between two countries.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has honoured with the awards those who show dedicated stewardship of land for more than two decades.
