Covia strives to cultivate a nurturing environment where team members with diverse backgrounds and experiences can thrive, recognizing that the success of a company is equal to the strength of its people. Covia is investing in outreach and development programs that will welcome and develop the next generation of Covia Team Members.

This summer, we are extending that exceptional experience to 10 talented interns from universities across the United States, who will work in our plants and functional areas such as marketing and finance. Working alongside experienced leaders on various projects, these participants will gain valuable and diverse experiences that will advance their careers. We hope to broaden and enhance their professional journeys by helping them discover new talents, but also to provide Covia leaders with moments of inspiration and the opportunity to listen and learn from this talented group of young men and women.

We look forward to witnessing their progress and growth and are confident they will make a lasting impression. "Our team looks forward to interacting with these young adults and developing their talents as they embark on their bright careers," said Brian Richardson, EVP, Chief Administrative Officer.

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.
