Mexican construction materials company Cemex has been awarded with 18 Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) Conservation certificates for its conservation programmes, wildlife education and environmental protection efforts.

The company received 15 certificates for its facilities in the US and, for the first, received three awards for its operations in Mexico.

Its crowned facilities include the company’s Center Hill Mine, Clinchfield Cement Plant and Victorville Cement Plant in the US. In Mexico, its Atotonilco Cement Plant, Huichapan Cement Plant and El Carmen Conservation Programme also won awards.
