  • CEMEX collaborates with international organizations to publish the 3rd
    volume of the CEMEX Nature Series
  • CEMEX launches the CEMEX Nature site to promote a global culture of
    appreciation and respect for nature

MONTERREY, Mexico–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE:CX) announced today the release of
“Earth’s Legacy: Natural World Heritage,” the third edition of its
Nature Series. This insightful and deeply informative series builds on
the more than two-decade tradition of CEMEX’s celebrated 20-volume
Conservation Book Series. This new book combines splendid photography
with expressive prose to enhance the reader’s comprehension and concern
for the conservation of our planet’s culturally arresting and naturally
diverse World Heritage sites.

For over two decades, CEMEX has had the privilege to work with some of
the world’s most prestigious and dedicated conservation organizations to
publish provocative books that illustrate the need to preserve and
protect our environment. This year’s volume is presented in
collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and
Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the International Union for Conservation
of Nature (IUCN), Conservation International, and The WILD Foundation.
Through the World Heritage Convention, UNESCO has successfully promoted
international cooperation to protect the exceptional cultural and
natural value of World Heritage sites for current and future
generations, so that they — unlike the seven wonders of the ancient
world — are conserved for all time.

“Earth’s Legacy: Natural World Heritage” captures the spectacular
diversity and beauty of these outstanding places on our planet. Through
evocative writing and unforgettable photography, it provides a
magnificent, comprehensive overview of these sites’ aesthetic, natural,
and cultural value, coupled with their remarkable geodiversity,
ecological processes, and biodiversity. It further highlights the sad
reality that many of these irreplaceable sites are under enormous risk
and require greater protection if humanity is to preserve the world’s
natural heritage for the future.

As one of the industry’s leading companies in areas of environmental
protection and land conservation, CEMEX fully recognizes the need to
protect the outstanding universal value of World Heritage sites.
Recognizing that nothing must impinge their settings and buffer zones,
CEMEX is committed to building awareness of natural World Heritage sites
and helping to promote and develop a culture of appreciation and respect
for nature among its stakeholders and, by extension, the global
community. It is further dedicated to working with relevant
international organizations, responsible local authorities,
corresponding statutory bodies and regulators so that the protection of
these sites is maintained and, where possible, access and amenity are

To further promote a culture of appreciation and respect for nature
across the global community, CEMEX is launching the CEMEX Nature Site,
using the dynamics of social media channels to reinforce the impact of
the published books. The site will go beyond extracts from the most
recent books to include information about CEMEX’s other biodiversity and
environmental projects.
