CEMEX USA recognized by NRMCA for outstanding commitment to community and environment
March 15, 2019
CEMEX USA announced today it has been awarded the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s 2019 Concrete Cares Award, recognizing the company’s commitment to building a better future in the communities in which it operates through service, education and environmental efforts.
CEMEX received the NRMCA Concrete Cares Award during the NRMCA’s annual convention held earlier this month in Tampa, Fla. The award recognizes CEMEX’s outstanding contributions in community service in collaboration with its Logistics and Ready-Mix divisions, spearheading programs such as its “Safer Roads Together” initiative which promotes increased safety awareness for bicyclists, truck drivers and other road users. The achievement also recognizes the efforts at many of CEMEX’s ready-mix concrete plants that have earned awards and certifications for their responsible sourcing and conservation efforts.
“At CEMEX, we’re committed to pursuing excellence every day whether it is for safety, our customers or our communities,” said CEMEX USA President Ignacio Madridejos. “We have several initiatives underway at our operations to reduce environmental impact, cut emissions and conserve areas where we operate. We are honored to be recognized for our efforts as we continue building a better future.”
In addition to the NRMCA Concrete Cares Award, Denise Corrales, CEMEX USA’s director of environmental in the eastern region, was awarded the 2019 Joseph E. Carpenter Award by the NRMCA’s Safety, Environmental & Operations Committee. Corrales is the first female to earn the award, and it recognizes her outstanding lifetime contributions in the ready-mix concrete industry. Corrales has dedicated more than 30 years to the industry in the environmental field, serving as a longtime judge of NRMCA’s Environmental Excellence Award Program and supporting the organization’s annual Environmental Course.
“Denise is a true embodiment of CEMEX’s dedication to being a good neighbor and commitment to operating in an environmentally-responsible manner,” said Kirk Light, CEMEX USA’s Regional President—Florida and Carolinas Region. “We are proud to see Denise receive this national recognition she rightly deserves.”
