Cement company CEMEX Philippines recently showcased its low carbon, eco-friendly Vertua product line and sustainability efforts during the Department of Public Works and Highway’s (DPWH) Regional Planning and Design Summit which is a week-long summit with over 200 delegates and guests, many of which were DPWH’s partners who could support the department’s plans featuring infrastructure projects in Region IV-B, through innovative and sustainable products and technologies.
CEMEX’s Vertua products reduce CO2 emissions by 15 to over 40 percent, in line with the company’s “Future in Action” campaign, a global strategy which focuses on reducing CO2 emissions by 35% by 2025 and around 40% by 2030. The ultimate goal of CEMEX is to become a net-zero CO2 company by 2050.
Vertua-branded products such as the Apo and Rizal Portland High Strength Blended Cement Type IP bear the Vertua Plus seal, signifying that these have corresponding classifications indicating the amount of CO2 reduced in their production. With their strength, durability, and lower emissions, these products are suitable for green and resilient megastructures.
