Strategic environmental management system

In Guatemala, all of our cement, concrete and aggregates operations have implemented the environmental management system. In Panama, the cement plant already has the system 100% implemented and the incorporation of the EMS in concrete operations is in process. In Belize we only produce cement and have already adopted this system.

ENVIRONMENTAL INVESTMENTS

We invested in the installation of two systems for the reuse of treated residual water in the concrete operations in Guatemala.

Energy

In our operations we consume electrical and thermal energy. In 2022, we consumed 518.8 GWh of electrical energy in all Cementos Progreso operations in the region.

ELECTRIC POWER

Of the total electrical energy consumed, 345.6 GWh (66.6%) was obtained from renewable sources.
