CEMEX has added 200 low carbon trucks to its fleet, in an attempt to cut its carbon footprint.

The construction company has set an aim to reach net zero by 2050 – and has invested into trucks to mix its concrete, powered by renewable natural gas.

These trucks are estimated to be 25% less carbon intensive than their diesel equivalents, with more than half deployed in Mexico and the remainder in California and Colombia.

Juan Romero, CEMEX Executive Vice President of Sustainability, said: “Our strategy combines taking immediate action to reduce our carbon footprint with currently available state-of-the-art technology, while at the same time collaborating with our partners to discover, pilot and scale the solutions needed to achieve net zero.”
