CEMEX USA announced today that seven of its cement plants earned Conservation Certification with the Wildlife Habitat Council for its conservation education programs, superior management of wildlife enhancement, and land stewardship projects.

“CEMEX USA is honored to receive certification through the Wildlife Habitat Council for the continued success of our environmental efforts,” said Karl H. Watson, Jr., President of CEMEX USA. “CEMEX’s partnership with this organization provides a valuable opportunity to engage our team and our community in wildlife enhancement and land stewardship initiatives, while fostering awareness of how industry and natural habitats can coexist.”

CEMEX maintains 14 facilities with Wildlife Habitat Council certified programs. Projects vary in scope from large scale prairie and wetland restoration to individual species management and native planting projects. Each year, over 3,000 students use our habitat as an outdoor classroom, building essential knowledge in key concepts and skills.

The Wildlife Habitat Council promotes and certifies habitat conservation and management on corporate lands through partnerships and education. WHC programs translate corporate sustainability goals and objectives into tangible and measurable on-the-ground actions. Through a focus on building collaboration for conservation with corporate employees, other conservation organizations, government agencies and community members, WHC programs focus on healthy ecosystems and connected communities.
