Caribbean Cement Company Limited is a member of TCL Group, which is owned by CEMEX – a global building materials company. The company mines gypsum and shale in four quarries and produces clinker and cement at our Plant in Rockfort, Kingston. Carib Cement is proudly embedded in Jamaica’s history as the supplier of the high quality cement that has built homes, schools, hospitals, roads, hotels, and many of the physical structures visited daily by Jamaicans and visitors around the island every day. The company provides more than 700 jobs through its operations and has the largest shareholder base on the Jamaica Stock Exchange.
We believe in building a greater Jamaica and see that defined communal spaces can contribute to individual and collective development. Using our expertise in cement, we would like to help a community realise its own goals for a shared space where everyone can play, exercise, learn and congregate. The competition format will help communities collaborate for a common cause. Our contribution to communities is also in keeping with both Jamaica’s National 2030 Vision and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal. Vision 2030’s Goal 1 seeks to empower Jamaicans to fulfill their fullest potential and sees the promotion of healthy lifestyles as an avenue for that. Having a park or space for learning, exercise, play and socializing will contribute to that objective. Similarly, SDG Goal 11 aims to promote universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible, public spaces.
