Thus, wherever we operate we strive to build mutually beneficial relationships with nearby districts and key stakeholders including neighbors, members of academia, NGOs and other corporations. These relationships with our communities are underpinned by ongoing dialogue, transparency and trust.
As a global business that recognizes the unique priorities and needs of our local communities, CEMEX aims to add public value by leveraging our business capabilities and above all, our people. We strive to establish alliances that enhance the solutions we offer, and we will work to expand our flagship programs to countries where they can have a high impact. Social business models have allowed CEMEX to work with hundreds of communities all over the world and improve the quality of life of approximately seven million people. Our 2020 target is to benefit with our social initiatives more than 15 million people throughout the world.
