U.S. Silica Exceeds 2012 Sustainability Targets
U.S. Silica recently announced it has exceeded all of its 2012 sustainability targets, including those for workplace safety, community investment and environmental protection. The company’s newly released sustainability report, “Connected,” provides a summary of the company’s goals and accomplishments over the past year.
“By all accounts, 2012 was a tremendous year for U.S. Silica, but our growth has not come at the expense of quality and value,” said Bryan Shinn, CEO. “We made progress in those areas as well, which are reflected in our operations, our safety records and the connections we have built with local communities.”
Under the guidance of the company’s Sustainability Council, the 2017 Bold Goals and Annual Targets are focused on three areas: people, planet and prosperity. Building off of the company’s last two reports, the reportreflects U.S. Silica’s commitment to employees, neighbors, shareholders and the natural environment. It also underscores U.S. Silica’s leadership in sustainability efforts, ranging from tree plantings and wildlife preservation initiatives to financial and in-kind support for local charities and outreach groups.
