About Us - Press Release - CEMEX presents "The IUCN Red List: 50 Years of Conservation"
December 4, 2014
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today the release of “The IUCN Red List: 50 Years of Conservation,” the second edition of its CEMEX Nature Series. This inviting and innovative series continues the tradition of excellence that won recognition for the company’s celebrated 20-volume CEMEX Conservation Series. Blending spectacular images from award-winning photojournalists with clear, concise, and evocative expert prose, this book engenders an impactful and inspirational awareness of the extinction crisis and a comprehension of its importance to humanity.
Since 1993, CEMEX has been honored to work with many of the world’s most dedicated conservation organizations to create impressive photography books related to the environment. This year, CEMEX builds upon its history of collaboration with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the world’s oldest and largest global environmental organization. Started in 2001, our partnership has now worked together to mark the significant contribution of The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species in guiding conservation action and policy decisions over the past 50 years, and to open new doors for potential sources of action from a global audience.
A combination of magnificent photography and absorbing expert commentary, this splendid anniversary volume brilliantly displays magnificent, endangered, but often little-known species. Among its treasures, it proudly presents 30 profiles of flagship species of plants and animals that have benefitted from their inclusion in the Red List in past years. Gripping the reader mentally and visually, this work underscores the value of the Red List as an invaluable conservation resource, a health check for our planet and a barometer of life.
Through these beautifully crafted books, CEMEX has sought to promote and develop a culture of appreciation and respect for nature, among its own stakeholders and, by extension, the global community. We heartily welcome everyone to embrace with us the universal goals of protecting endangered species, celebrating our world’s natural diversity, and preserving our precious multiculturalism. We firmly believe that together we can make a significant contribution through dialogue and action to improve and preserve our environments in every corner of our unique planet.
