Everything we do is geared towards ensuring that we remain the supplier, employer, and partner of choice.
We are constantly evolving in order to become more flexible in our operations, more creative in our commercial offerings, more sustainable in our use of resources, more innovative in conducting our global business, and more efficient in our capital allocation.
We have a geographically diversified portfolio of assets in well-balanced sustainable and profitable growth markets, focused on our core business of cement, aggregates, and ready-mix concrete.
We create value for our shareholders through a forward-looking growth strategy and disciplined fund allocation. Our vertically integrated portfolio of cement, aggregates, and ready-mix concrete—tailored to each market’s needs—provides us with the opportunity to manage our assets as one integrated business rather than as distinct businesses, further improving our operational efficiency and profitability.For more information on our financial and business strategy, visit our Investor Relations page.
We are committed to providing our customers with the most reliable and comprehensive array of building materials. To this end, we tailor our products and services to suit our customers' specific needs, from home and commercial construction, improvement, and renovation to infrastructure, agricultural, industrial, and other specialty applications.
We strive to create value for our customers by focusing on more vertically integrated building solutions rather than separate products. We foster long-term customer relationships by providing them with reliable, high-quality service and consistent product quality. We constantly adapt to our customers’ needs through innovative products and financing schemes, providing them with solutions for the challenges they face in their specific market and business climate.For more information on how our products provide the solution to our customer’s business materials needs, visit our Products and Services page.
Sustainable development is embedded in our core business strategy and our day-to-day operations. We seek to build a smarter world through a simple and focused model that follows three main lines of action:
Enhancing our Value Creation: We seek to increase our operational efficiency through innovation and collaboration, in order to develop building solutions to meet the needs of a world with limited resources.
Managing our Footprint: We contribute to the development of a low carbon economy, helping to address climate change which is one of the world’s greatest challenges.
Engaging our Stakeholders: Our long-term success rests on fostering positive, long-term relationships with key stakeholders.For more information on our sustainable development strategy, visit Sustainable Development page.
We recognize that the construction industry is shifting toward more cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly solutions; this inspires us to be more innovative in conducting our global business.
Through our efficient and sustainable approach to innovation, from supply chain and logistics to plant production and technical centers, we provide our customers with the most reliable and creative construction materials.
Our Global Center for Technology and Innovation in Switzerland houses a state-of-the-art research laboratory. This laboratory has a unique and broad range of investigation tools and novel in-house testing methods that are available to the CEMEX community. Our research center has considerable expertise in the following areas: new and enhanced construction materials; sustainable construction; cementitious materials (cement, fly ash, and slag); concrete and mortar products; admixture formulations; and aggregates.
Our industry-best processes allow us to satisfy the needs of our customers while using the optimal amount of resources, thus creating the most value. We constantly seek to improve our performance as an efficient, agile, and innovative company by identifying, sharing, and implementing best practices across our global network of plants and facilities.
We constantly create and develop methodologies that serve as the framework for our daily tasks. For example, our Shared Service Center centralizes high-volume transactions in one of three centralized hubs, which provide end-to-end, value-added customer-oriented processes. The centers permit simple, scalable, and flexible local decision making guided by corporate rule making. This strategy allows us to mobilize global initiatives much faster, in parallel rather than in sequence.For more examples of how we create value through operating efficiency, visit the Operational Efficiency section of our stories page.
Our commitment to deliver value to our stockholders rests on a clear recognition that, as a public company, we are stewards of other people’s money. They invest with us to achieve superior long-term returns at acceptable risk. We have never—and will never—lose sight of that fact.
We are committed to abide by the laws and regulations of every jurisdiction in which we operate. Nonetheless, we recognize that our strict adherence to the law is not enough to run a global organization. Beyond compliance, our commitment—to ourselves, our investors, and to all of our stakeholders—is to manage CEMEX with integrity. Everything we do rests on this foundation.For more information on our commitment to adhere to the highest standards of corporate ethics, visit our Corporate Governance page.
