Cemex Pledge Actions:

Sustainability at CEMEX is embedded in our business strategy and in our day-to-day operations. CEMEX aims to lead in sustainable construction by developing building products and solutions that have significant positive sustainability attributes and contribute to the transformation of the construction sector. Our purpose is to build a better future, and in order to do that we must address humanity’s most pressing issue: climate change. As one of the world’s largest building solutions providers, climate action has been a priority for CEMEX for many years. We are fully aware that our production processes have a carbon footprint. According to the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA), the cement industry is the source of about 5% - 8% of the world’s CO2 emissions. We also know that our end-product, ready-mix concrete, is the most used man-made material in the world and plays an essential role in society’s development and growth. This sets the stage for us to contribute to climate change mitigation by reducing CO2 emissions in our production processes, as well as the entire life cycle of our products. Recognizing that global climate action goals require stronger efforts, and ensuring sustainability is at the core of everything we do, we created Future in Action, a program focused on developing low carbon products, solutions, and processes to become a net-zero CO2 company. The objective is clear: achieving carbon neutrality. In order to reach it, we are setting aggressive decarbonization goals with a very specific roadmap to achieve them, and working with external partners to validate and endorse our commitments. Our ultimate goal is to deliver only net-zero CO2 concrete by 2050. To ensure we are on the right track, we have set the most ambitious 2030 targets available to the industry. Future in Action recognizes that the opportunity for reducing emissions is not limited to the production process but to the entire life cycle of our products, as well as transforming the industry’s value chain. Future in Action focuses on significantly reducing direct and indirect CO2 emissions from our operations, as well as providing sustainable and innovative solutions for society
