CEMEX USA has been awarded the 2017 Lone Star Land Steward Award by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for its dedication to sustainability and land stewardship for the Trans Pecos Ecoregion.
CEMEX announced its recent award honor which recognized the company, the El Carmen Land & Conservation Co. LLC and co-owner Josiah Austin for their devotion to wildlife and natural-resource management at the El Carmen Nature Reserve. The reserve is a trans-boundary conservation area in the Big Bend region and includes five separate ecosystems that are home to a large variety of plants, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
“CEMEX wants to ensure we preserve the unique landscape at El Carmen, and we strive for sustainability in everything we do,” CEMEX USA’s Texas Region President Scott Ducoff said in a statement. “We are constantly committed to conserving the land so species that rely on it can do so for decades to come.”
The El Carmen spans from Texas into Mexico with conservation agreements between CEMEX and landowners on both sides of the border.
CEMEX, a global building materials company, provides products and service in over 50 countries throughout the world. The company has 11 cement plants, 43 distribution terminals, 57 aggregate quarries and over 270 ready-mix concrete plants.
