Cemex has announced that it is strengthening its commitment to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by prioritising five goals that are directly connected with the company's business and represent a better opportunity to contribute to the UN 2030 Agenda.

These five goals are focussed on:
• the promotion of decent employment and economic growth
• innovation and infrastructure development
• climate change mitigation
• environmental and ecosystem conservation
• the advancement of sustainable cities and communities.

The five priority SDGs represent the greatest opportunities to contribute further and to identify new business oportunities connected with Cemex's business strategy, such as innovation, research and development, employability, climate change, diversity and education, among others, said Cemex.

"Consistent with our commitment to the UN SDGs, we continue to contribute to these global goals and develop business opportunities for our company by creating shared value for society," said Fernando A González, CEO of Cemex. "We invite the private sector to join this commitment and generate inclusive prosperity and sustainable development."
