Governance

The CEMEX Community Fund is a not for profit organisation which is funded by landfill tax credits and donations from CEMEX UK. The Fund supports projects which improve local community facilities and places of interest near CEMEX operations across the country.

CEMEX is one of the UK’s largest building material companies. The company provides aggregates, asphalt, cement, readymixed concrete and a range of pre-cast concrete products. While it always seeks to minimise impact, the company recognises that its business has consequences for people and the environment. The CEMEX Community Fund seeks to help balance these impacts, and is an integral part of CEMEX’s vision of a successful company that makes a positive contribution to people and the environment.

The CEMEX Community Fund is run by a Board which is separate from CEMEX and operates under the Landfill Communities Fund. It is funded by a tax on the disposal of waste and regulated by Entrust, which regulates the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs. In addition, to qualify for funding, applying organisations must comply with the Landfill Communities Fund regulatory requirements and responsibilities.

While many landfill operators require contributing third parties to make a 10% contribution for the proportion of any donation unrecoverable as a Landfill Tax Credit, CEMEX makes this contribution from its own resources, as part of its commitment to support local communities near its operations.

The CEMEX Community Fund dates back to 2004. It was originally named the RMC Community Fund, and has been operating under its current name since 2005, following CEMEX’s acquisition of the RMC Group.
