Business + Financial Strategy
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.

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.
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.
Corporate Governance + Ethics
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.
Our values define the character of our company, they express who we are, how we behave, and what we believe in just as much as the products and services that bear the CEMEX brand.
We make safety a personal responsibility and hold each other accountable for safe acts and behaviors, ensuring that nothing comes before the health & safety of our people, contractors and the community.
Focus on Customers
We build close customer relationships that set us apart from our competitors by listening to our customers, understanding their challenges and providing valuable solutions.
Our passion for the work we do drives us to exceed expectations, to challenge ourselves to constantly improve and to never settle for “good enough.”
Work as One CEMEX
Leveraging our global knowledge in our local markets is our competitive advantage; we share ideas globally to maximize our individual contributions.
Act with Integrity
We act with honesty and transparency in all our interactions because we care for our people, for our communities and for our natural resources.
Over the past century, we have grown from a local player to one of the top global companies in our industry. We have the people, the culture, and the opportunities to continue addressing society’s growing needs with high-quality products and innovative solutions.
