Colombia will be the first in Latin America to launch this new offer, and other countries in the region will join in the coming weeks.
President of Cemex Colombia and Peru, Alejandro Ramirez, recalled that the company announced Concreto Vertua in October 2020, the first line of this material in Colombia that reduces and offsets its CO2 emissions until reaching carbon neutrality.
“Today, we reaffirm our commitment to the environment by launching Cemento Vertua. Our clients now have at their disposal a wide portfolio of reliable construction materials that reduce and offset their CO2 emissions,” Ramírez highlighted.
