Mexico: Cemex has launched Operation Resilience, its 2020 medium-term strategy. The plan consists of strategic divestments, US$280m in cost reduction and optimisation of the company’s portfolio towards European and US markets.
Chief executive officer (CEO) Fernando Gonzalez said, “Operation Resilience lays the foundation for our future. It allows Cemex to optimise its portfolio for profitable growth while securing its position as a leading vertically-integrated heavy building materials company with a focus on four core businesses: cement, ready-mix, aggregates and urbanisation solutions. We will concentrate on developing sustainable urbanisation solutions which meet the needs of growing metropolises while we ourselves progress towards achieving our long-term decarbonisation goals.”
