Cemex USA was recognized by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for its commitment to sustainability and land stewardship with the 2017 Lone Star Land Steward Award for the Trans Pecos Ecoregion.

According to Cemex, the award recognizes Cemex, the El Carmen Land & Conservation Co. (ECLCC) and ECLCC part owner Josiah Austin for their dedication to natural resources management through work in Texas at the El Carmen Nature Preserve. The award also acknowledges their efforts to restore lands and native wildlife in the U.S. portion of the preserve, as well as their commitment to protect the wildlife and bird migration routes between the United States and Mexico.

“Cemex wants to ensure we preserve the unique landscape at El Carmen, and we strive for sustainability in everything we do,” says Scott Ducoff, Cemex USA’s regional president of the Texas region. “We are constantly committed to conserving the land so species that rely on it can do so for decades to come.”

The El Carmen Nature Preserve is a private trans-boundary conservation area in the Big Bend region that comprises five different ecosystems and is home to a number of plants, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.

Cemex is a global building materials company that provides its products and services to customers in more than 50 countries throughout the world. Its U.S. network includes 11 cement plants, 43 distribution terminals and 57 aggregate quarries.
