Cemex's commitment to reducing energy consumption, minimizing environmental impact, and promoting sustainable practices within its cement plants, ready-mix concrete facilities, and other operations across the United States is highlighted through this award.

EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan acknowledges the pivotal role of private sector partners like Cemex in advancing the clean energy agenda outlined in President Biden's Investing in America initiative.
