Conservation Projects - CEMEX USA
CEMEX values the protection of biodiversity and is dedicated to nature conservancy. Many of our facilities have designated thousands of acres that are utilized for wildlife habitat management, wetland restoration and environmental educational programs. Several of our locations are certified through the Wildlife Habitat Council’s Corporate Lands for Learning Program.
Our team in Louisville, Kentucky recently planted a tree farm at the plant site. The trees will be donated to the city and will play an integral part in Louisville’s urban reforestation program.
At Ready-Mix USA facilities, CEMEX focuses not only on planting pollinator-friendly vegetation, but also on awareness and collaboration with over 25 employees participating in the efforts to plant milkweed and bring the monarch butterfly back by participating in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Wildlife Habitat Council’s (WHC) Monarch Partnership.
CEMEX’s plant and quarry in Lyons, Colorado has established a multi-faceted land stewardship program that involves planting native prairie vegetation to create long-term, self-sustaining plant communities, the installation of pollinator gardens, the use of biological controls for invasive weed species, including targeted goat grazing, and other enhancements to the area’s biodiversity.
