Environmental Sustainability & Community Partnerships
Giving Back to the Community
Kosmos Cement Company is proud to work with our community partners towards a better future. We pursue partnerships that align with the needs of the community in which we live and work. We strive to be environmentally and sustainability conscious while producing a quality product for our customers. Kosmos believes the best path to a better tomorrow begins with our actions today.
Kosmos partners with stakeholders to develop relationships that will collaboratively produce productive change in our community. Some of these partners include our employees, customers, regulators, suppliers, local schools, academic institutions, neighbors and non-profit organizations.
Kosmosdale Oral History Project
The KOHP formed to preserve the history of Kosmosdale, a "company town" owned by Kosmos Portland Cement Company. Kosmos works with the KOHP to continue these preservation efforts.
Kosmos has worked with several academic institutions to enrich their education about our facility, employees and the cement manufacturing process. Our team has also provided tours and short lectures to Job Corps and other community members.
Wildlife Habitat Council
Wildlife Habitat Council helps companies demonstrate a long-term commitment to managing quality habitat for wildlife, conservation education and community outreach initiatives. The Kosmos team received a recertification from WHC for Wildlife at Work and Corporate Lands for Learning. Projects included pollinator habitats, education and habitat management.
Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA)
Since 1988, QDMA has worked to promote sustainable, high-quality deer populations, wildlife habitats and ethical hunting experiences through research, education, advocacy, and hunter recruitment. QDMA teaches deer hunters how to improve local deer populations, habitat and hunting experiences.
Kosmos partners with QDMA each year to help sponsor the military youth hunt. This is an opportunity for the children of men and women serving in the Armed Forces to learn about hunting and deer habitat management. Without this program many of these children would not be afforded this opportunity.
