For over 100 years, U.S. Silica has grown and evolved, but we have never lost sight of our responsibilities to preserve our planet and maintain a safe and supportive workplace for our team members. We value empowering our employees and making investments to enhance our communities, and have taken steps to prioritize increased safety measures and reduce our environmental footprint.
PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
We actively seek new opportunities to reduce fuel, electricity, and water usage at our plants and pilot new programs to engage in local conservation efforts and community initiatives. In order to combat climate change, we have made decreasing greenhouse gas emissions across our operations one of our top priorities across our plants and our fleet.
PROMOTING SAFETY EVERYWHERE WE ARE
As our industry evolves, we’ve expanded our definition of safety to include not only the environment and our operations, but also our cyber networks and online programs. In 2018, we instituted the U.S. Silica Environmental, Health & Safety Management System to mainstream our operations and ensure that our core values are embedded throughout our business and further promote our culture of safety.
TREATING OTHERS WITH RESPECT & INTEGRITY
We prioritize Honesty and Integrity – with our customers, our partners, and our employees. We foster a culture of leadership and growth and encourage opportunities for employees to grow within the company, and actively recruit talented people from different backgrounds and experiences. We are also committed increasing supplier diversity and building new relationships with minority- and women-owned businesses.
