“Water is a resource for which there is no substitute. Without adequate supplies of water, not only do businesses face serious risks, but also do public water providers and ecosystems. In partnering with IUCN, CEMEX is working to achieve improved water management across its operations, maintain access to sustainable sources of water, and reduce risks associated with water for the company,” said Dr. James Dalton, IUCN Water Program Coordinator, Global Initiatives.
The CEMEX-IUCN “Water Project” was presented to members of the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium, on December 12, 2012. During the one-day conference, CEMEX and IUCN shared lessons learned and ways forward towards improved sustainability of water resources.
The event was hosted by the Spanish Permanent Representation to the European Union, numerous members of the European Commission, key environmental NGOs, trade associations, environmental think tanks, ambassadors from several nations, and other important stakeholders. Key participants included Dr. Mark Smith, Director, IUCN Global Water Program, Dr. James Dalton, Coordinator Global Water Initiatives, IUCN Global Water Program, and Benedikt Jodocy, VP Legal & Sustainability, CEMEX Germany.
