Eight Cemex sites receive WHC certification
Cemex USA announced that eight of its sites in the USA received certifications through the Wildlife Habitat Council’s (WHC) Corporate Lands for Learning and Wildlife at Work Programs.
Sites include Cemex’s cement plant in Knoxville, Tenn., the Brooksville Quarry in Brooksville, Fla., the FEC Quarry in Miami, the 474 Sand Mine in Clermont, Fla., the Gator Sand Mine in Davenport, Fla., the Lake Wales Sand Mine in Lake Wales, Fla., the Center Hill Quarry in Center Hill, Fla., and Cemex’s cement plant in Lyons, Colo.
Each of these sites received recognition for creating, conserving, and restoring their habitat with the involvement of employees and members of the community. The Knoxville cement plant received its first certification with WHC’s Corporate Lands for Learning program for their exemplary conservation education opportunities provided to the local community.
“Cemex USA is honored to partner again with the Wildlife Habitat Council with seven sites receiving re-certification along with the new addition of our Knoxville cement plant to the program,” said Karl Watson, Jr., President of Cemex USA. “We value the opportunity to engage our community in environmental education opportunities while fostering an understanding of how Cemex values biodiversity and sustainability.”
Additionally, the Cemex Lyons plant placed as a finalist for WHC’s Prairies for Tomorrow Award which recognized their outstanding restoration work on site.
