Every day, Covia helps improve our local communities by donating to local food banks, advancing the safety and health of first responders, and building key relationships in our local communities. To further support impactful community engagement and encourage Team Member volunteerism, Covia launched Covia Cares Action Days. This initiative provides each Covia location with the opportunity to dedicate at least a full workday to a volunteer effort or cause that is important to them.
For a recent Covia Cares Action Day, the Covia Team Members at the Camden, Tennessee, facility spent three days at Second Harvest Food Bank’s Ray Smith Family Distribution Center sorting and packing food for their local community. The Camden facility has been working with the Second Harvest for the past three years, supporting the food bank's efforts to advance hunger solutions for 46 counties near the Camden facility.
Covia’s approach to making a positive impact on our communities relies on our ability to understand their needs and then do everything we can to help meet them. Our Team Members – each and every one – play a critical role in helping us meet these important objectives, and we are grateful for their ongoing dedication to ensuring Covia remains a responsible corporate citizen and welcomed neighbor.

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 and the events in the world around us.
Our commitment to operating as a responsible corporate citizen has been embedded into every aspect of our business for decades and serves as the foundation for Covia’s ESG initiatives. From our operations to our Team Members and the communities in which we live and work, we continue to define WHAT WE’RE MADE OF as more than the materials we produce, but the impact we can make in every interaction.
In 2021, we enhanced our approach toward accelerating ESG performance by developing our formal GOALS THAT INSPIRE: ESG 2030. These 10 goals, broken into our three core areas - Environmental Stewardship, Positive Social Impact and Responsible Governance & Ethics - were developed by Covia Team members across the company and are designed to drive tangible and measurable progress in areas where we can make the most impact.
We have the commitment and strategy in place to drive meaningful progress and we are pledging to make a positive differences for our people, our planet and our communities.
