Sustainable Development

Sustainable development is the guiding principle behind Unimin's long-term planning. Sustainability means fulfilling present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to also meet their needs. We recognize that today's decisions can have consequences for generations to come, so we proactively manage our operations and resources to ensure a sustainable business model for our employees, customers, community and other stakeholders.

With disciplined application, our sustainability programs facilitate the simultaneous pursuit of economic prosperity, environmental quality and social consciousness. Exploration activity, mine modeling and strategic decisions reflect corporate edicts to balance current and future demand for mineral products with prudent resource management and environmental stewardship. Our operating philosophy encourages community interface and participation, so that we may collectively create a sustainable economic and environmentally friendly future.

Through leadership, commitment and diligence, we endeavor to be a good neighbor.
