NRMCA Producer member CEMEX has been included in Fortune magazine's Change the World list, a ranking that recognizes 50 companies worldwide that have made a sizable impact on major global social or environmental problems as part of their competitive strategy. In the 16th place, CEMEX is the only Latin American-based company included and the only company from the construction materials sector. CEMEX was recognized for its Patrimonio Hoy program which provides low-income families living in urban and semi-urban areas with access to building materials, as well as microfinancing, technical advice and logistical support to assist participants in building their own homes. The program is destined not only to housing projects but also to the improvement of local public infrastructure. Since its inception, Patrimonio Hoy has provided affordable solutions to approximately two million people throughout Latin America.

"We are proud to be included in Fortune's Change the World list," said Fernando A. Gonzalez, CEMEX chief executive officer. "This recognition reinforces our commitment to continue working everyday to build a better future."
