Sustainable Products and Solutions


Committed to Building a Sustainable Future


At CEMEX we lead the development of innovative solutions that seek to contribute to building resilient infrastructure, climate-smart urban development, promoting economic growth, preserving the environment, and improving everyone’s quality of life. 

Life Cycle and Durability


Concrete’s durability and longer life cycle make it the ideal building material for durable and resilient structures. Our technologies provide building solutions that are more resistant to fire, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. Thus reducing the need for repairing and rebuilding, which plays a key role in making it a more climate-friendly material.

As part of our Future in Action program we offer products that help our customers reduce the carbon footprint of their construction processes. 

With sustainable attributes such as resilience, thermal efficiency, and recyclability, concrete is a building material essential to construction with no substitutes and the most used man-made material in the world. Concrete is the only building material that absorbs CO2  during its built life. By the process of recarbonation, it absorbs up to 25% of its embodied carbon footprint.

Sustainable Products & Solutions



In 2020 we launched Vertua, our first-ever net-zero CO2  concrete, which is now part of an extensive family of products that includes low carbon cements, concrete, as well as aggregates and admixtures globally available.

Net-Zero CO2 Emissions Concrete Process


Building a better future for our planet requires innovating in concrete, bringing these characteristics into a new era and a low-carbon economy.


To this end we have set the goal of achieving 50% of Vertua cement and ready-mix sales by 2025.

By developing and implementing sustainable products and solutions we help our customers accomplish their net-zero targets and carbon obligations, while also helping them meet increasing sustainability requirements. Our 2050 goal to deliver only net-zero CO2  concrete will contribute to the development of climate-smart urban projects, sustainable buildings, and climate resilient infrastructure.
