Our partnership with BirdLife enables us to create effective local partnerships with BirdLife Partners (environmental NGOs), which adds immense value to our ongoing efforts to ensure that biodiversity thrives around our operations.”Noteworthy Achievements
- In 2010, the partnership completed a groundbreaking scoping study of 543 CEMEX sites worldwide in terms of their proximity to areas of high biodiversity. A call to action, the scoping study prioritizes the operational sites where efforts to identify, protect, enhance, and restore biodiversity are most urgently needed.
- At the end of 2011, the partnership officially launched the CEMEX-Birdlife Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) standard. This standard provides a uniform framework for identifying, protecting, and enhancing biodiversity at a site, including stages for biodiversity surveys, stakeholder engagement, and sustainable site management.
- Currently, six BAP pilot projects are up and running in Mexico, the USA, the UK, Spain, Malaysia, and the Dominican Republic. Almost all of these projects, which are located within each CEMEX region, are underpinned by national partnerships with BirdLife Partners.
- The CEMEX-BirdLife event at the BirdLife International World Congress marked the launch of a brand new publication for CEMEX operations and for BirdLife Partners, ‘The CEMEX approach to Biodiversity Conservation’
