Our Approach 

At Covia, we are committed to being more than just a leading provider of high-performance mineral and material solutions – we believe that our company can make a positive difference in the world.  This belief is what drives our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy, which is influenced by both our journey as an organization, the events in the world around us, and our Goals That Inspire. These goals include metrics to drive accountability and enhance transparency around our ESG initiatives. We have also taken steps to ensure our commitments align with broader global priorities and goals, including incorporating several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) into our targets and as a signatory of the UN Global Compact.

Alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals

We evaluated the 17 UN SDGs and identified 11 for which we believe we can have a direct impact and that align with our Goals that Inspire. This demonstrates our thoughtful, stakeholder-driven approach to developing and working toward our ESG aspirations.

Corporate Responsibility Report: What Inspires Us

Covia's annual Corporate Responsibility Report is designed to showcase the remarkable achievements made by our team members throughout the year on ESG matters that hold significance for our business, customers, communities, and other stakeholders.

ESG Strategy

Our commitment to ESG performance is far-reaching, starting with the Board of Managers and Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and cascading to Team Members across our organization. Each quarter, our Board receives an update on our ESG progress and performance. The Board uses this information in close collaboration with our ELT to further refine and enhance the strategic direction of our ESG programming.

Goals That Inspire

Covia continues to build on a long legacy of corporate responsibility. We have ambitious goals that are aimed at accelerating our ESG progress and performance through 2030. These are our Goals That Inspire in the areas of Environmental Stewardship, Positive Social Impact, and Responsible Governance and Ethics.

Past Reports and Documents

We see our approach to the many initiatives and programs at Covia to be continuously improving bodies of work – as such, we view the many living documents intended to help push best practices and evolve to meet the changing needs of the industries we serve. The documents are reviewed at least annually and updated to reflect the dynamic materiality of Covia’s issues and opportunities.
