2018 CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY REPORT

Integrated Framework

At Covia, our long-standing commitment to Sustainable Development is woven into all that we do—our mindset, structure, strategies, processes, and metrics. Sustainable business growth is a top priority, and that growth is supported and driven by our investments in people, innovation, efficiencies, and responsible business practices.

We use our assets and resources wisely—working to unleash their inherent value—benefiting our employees, our business, and our stakeholders. We understand our social, environmental, and economic impacts, risks, and opportunities, and we proactively work to address them. As we set our future Sustainable Development ambitions, we aim to lead the way to a better future. In 2019, we plan to develop a set of long-term SD goals that will be embedded into this integrated framework.
