Covia Honored With the 2024 Environmental/Sustainability Award

Covia is pleased to announce that we were honored with the 2024 Environmental/Sustainability Award during the Peterborough County Community Recognition Awards ceremony on Thursday, May 16th at the Douro Community Centre in Peterborough, Ontario. Our nomination by the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre and the Lake Kasshabog Residents Association (LKRA) highlights our dedication to fostering lasting partnerships within our communities, as well as our innovative approach and leadership in environmental conservation and sustainability efforts.

Our initiatives encompass a wide range of activities, from safeguarding local wildlife to supporting environmental and wildlife initiatives led by the LKRA, as well as raising awareness among the public about environmental projects in the region.

Covia collaborates with the LKRA to reduce our environmental footprint in and around the lake. We facilitate a positive relationship with the residents by actively protecting local wildlife, such as establishing pollinator gardens, participating in the Birds Canada Loon Study by placing loon protection signs around the lake, and safeguarding local turtle populations through egg collection and incubation.

Members of our Covia Canada team were present to accept the award. We invite you to join us in celebrating this exciting achievement.

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.
