Notes Offering (Form 6-K)


On September 7, 2021, CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: CX) ('CEMEX') announced that the company has finalized a sustainability-linked financing framework (the 'Framework') that establishes CEMEX's guiding principles when issuing new sustainability linked financing instruments, including public or private notes offerings, loans, derivative transactions, working capital solutions and other financing instruments. The Framework seeks to further align CEMEX's corporate sustainability commitments to its financing strategy. Sustainalytics, a leading independent firm that specializes in providing environmental, social and governance research, ratings, and data to institutional investors and companies, validated the Framework's alignment with the Sustainability-Linked Bond Principles, the International Capital Market Association's Climate Transition Finance Handbook, and the Loan Market Association's Sustainability-Linked Loan Principles. CEMEX has included the following three key performance indicators in the Framework: (1) net CO2 emissions per ton of cementitious product, (2) clean electricity consumption and (3) alternative fuels rate, all of which were qualified by Sustainalytics as relevant, material, ambitious, and aligned with CEMEX's climate action strategy. The Framework is available in CEMEX's corporate website in the following link: www.cemex.com/sustainable-finance.
