"As we grow, we continue to work to strengthen our commitment to sustainable development." Lorenzo H. Zambrano, Chairman and CEO

At CEMEX this means increasing long-term competitiveness, while minimizing impacts on people and the environment, and generating maximum value for local and global stakeholders.

What does this look like in practice? We invite you to visit the 2007 Sustainable Development Interim Report at www.cemex.com/su/su_re_gr.asp to find out.

Here are some of the report's highlights:
CO2 emissions per ton of cement, which were externally audited, decreased 2.4% and alternative fuel use increased to 7%
Targets for alternative raw materials use and the number of active cement sites with rehabilitation plans, set at 12% and 82% respectively, were met. Work continues towards longer-term objectives
To further promote biodiversity, which is currently addressed at 69% of the company’s cement sites, a ten-year partnership was signed with BirdLife International
The lost time injury rate fell by 25% and the fatality rate by 18%
