CEMEX USA has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a 2020 Energy Star Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence, marking the second consecutive year the company has been honored for its energy management and longstanding commitment to sustainability.
The award is the latest honor by the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy that recognizes CEMEX USA’s ongoing and active participation in the Energy Star program. Last year, the company was named Partner of the Year for Energy Management with two CEMEX USA cement plants earning Energy Star certification. Since 2007, CEMEX USA operations have earned more than 50 Energy Star certifications.
“Sustainability is embedded in our day-to-day operations at CEMEX and an integral part of our core business strategy,” said CEMEX USA President Jaime Muguiro. “Energy conservation is part of our vision as we are building a better future and believe it’s our responsibility to vigorously practice energy management through ongoing initiatives and the use of alternative fuels. We’re proud to be recognized again for our efforts as EPA Energy Star Partner of the Year and applaud our operations for consistently working to make a difference.”
The Energy Star Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award is the highest honor among Energy Star awards. EPA presents the award to partners that have already received Energy Star Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition.
“I salute the 2020 Energy Star award winners,” said Anne Idsal, EPA principal deputy assistant administrator for air and radiation. “These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection.”
