ESG 2030 Index

At Covia, we understand the importance of maintaining high standards of corporate transparency, even as a privately held company. We are dedicated to fostering a transparent culture and going beyond what is required of us to maintain trust and credibility among our stakeholders. Our corporate transparency targets support our ongoing efforts to drive accountability throughout the organization, therefore, in 2022 we submitted our letter of intent to the UN Global Compact and are proud to be a signatory of the Compact, effective September 27th, 2022.

Natalie Eglinton, Director, ESG stated “Covia is proud to be a member of the United Nations Global Compact, the largest international initiative that aims to support companies in their ESG journeys. By joining the Global Compact, Covia is reiterating its commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs).”

We evaluated 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. We look forward to enhancing our efforts and disclosures around these important commitments. For more information, visit: https://www.coviacorp.com/media/f5khkcus/2022-esg-report-eng.pdf

We feel this membership aligns with Covia’s vision to make a positive difference in the world. Through this commitment, Covia will continue to pursue and deepen its actions to promote our ESG Strategy and commitment to human rights, environmental protection, and anti-corruption.

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.
