Cemex officials collect the sustainability award
says that for the third consecutive year, the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV) recognised it as the best-qualified company in the area of sustainability from a total of 79 listed companies.
For the seventh consecutive year, the Mexican Stock Exchange selected Cemex to participate in its Sustainability Index, which recognises organisations’ performance in the three pillars of sustainability: Corporate Governance, Social Responsibility, and Environment.
Cemex’s recognition is based on work carried out by the Universidad Anáhuac México Sur, an organisation that annually analyses the information and practices of listed companies to determine the composition of the Sustainability Index.
The award ceremony was held in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, at the 9th Issuer Forum of the Mexican Stock Exchange.
Jaime Ruiz Sacristán, chairman of the Mexican Stock Exchange, and José Oriol Bosch, CEO of the Mexican Stock Exchange, hosted the event.
“This recognition reaffirms our commitment to achieve excellence in sustainability, as well as to embed high international standards for environmental and social performance and corporate governance across our organisation,” said Vicente Saisó, Cemex corporate director of sustainability.
