Empowering Our People and Communities
•Economic Investment: When planned investments in Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina are complete, it is estimated that Enviva’s footprint across the U.S. Southeast will support approximately 4,200 jobs and an annual economic impact of more than 2.7 billion dollars.
•Sustainable Forestry and Land Retention: Since 2013, Enviva partnered with the Sustainable Forestry and African American Land Retention Program, launched by the U.S. Endowment for Forest & Communities as well as the U.S. Forest Service and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. The program provides resources to empower all landowners with a focus on engaging and encouraging African American forest landowners to keep and use forestland that has been passed down to them for generations, helping families turn their land from a liability into an asset – providing both an income and a legacy for future generations.
•Ongoing Community Involvement: Enviva’s positive community impact in the U.S. Southeast doesn’t end with the economic development driven by the company’s operations. Enviva provides significant support and investment of resources to local schools, colleges, first responders, and charitable organizations across a broad range of community programs focused on the rural U.S. Southeast.
Growing and Thriving Forests
•Keeping Forests as Forests: Enviva partnered with The Longleaf Alliance to help conserve rare and threatened species and ecosystems and to help restore longleaf pine, a critical species in the pine forest ecosystem in the U.S. Southeast, through its responsible wood sourcing.
