Covia continues to invest in building communities


Covia continues to invest in building communities
Covia's strength is fundamentally rooted in our people and the relationships they build with the communities in which they live and work by investing time, talent, and money. Covia prioritizes community engagement in order to create an engaging, thriving workplace.

The Covia Foundation, established to formalize our approach to operating as a responsible corporate citizen, oversees Covia's comprehensive community engagement and philanthropic initiatives. Our Community Investment Policy, which guides charitable contributions and volunteerism, is governed by the Foundation. Initiatives are organised under four key pillars where Covia can have the greatest impact, and are supported by the Community Investment Policy:
  • Health and Wellness
  • Education
  • Environment
  • Social Equality
Each pillar represents an important aspect of Covia's communities, Team Members, and other stakeholders.
The Community Investment Policy also encourages Team Members to give back in the following ways:
  • 24 hours of paid volunteer time per year;
  • a matching gift program of up to $1,000 per year; and
  • grants to tax-exempt organizations where Covia Team Members volunteer at least 20 hours of their personal time and talent.
