Corporate Social Responsibility
Supporting Our Communities
We recognize that our employees are driven by meaningful, purpose-driven volunteer opportunities. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program is led by a diverse group of employees, energized by our mission to connect people with their passion. Below are just a few highlights of how our employees give back.
Walk for Water
In recognition of World Water Day on March 22 each year, our employees participate in a month-long Walk for Water Challenge. Walk for Water raises awareness around water scarcity while also challenging participants to incorporate walking into their daily routines. In 2022, 148 employees walked, ran, or biked over 16,500 miles. For each mile, a donation was made to directly fund a clean water project with charity: water, whose mission is to implement sustainable, community-owned water projects in remote communities.
Our Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania team partnered with Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy to clean up a popular local lake and get the surrounding park ready for spring. “Opportunities like this, where I can give back to the community that helped me become who I am, are truly priceless.” Lyssa Cunningham, Contract Manager.
Waukesha Food Bank
Our Waukesha, WI employees volunteered at The Food Pantry of Waukesha County. Employees, led by Sales Process Specialist Kayla Szalewski, collected packaged goods at our facility before bringing them to the pantry to sort and pack. The group was able to distribute a week’s worth of food to 70 local families in need.
Lowell Parks & Conservancy
Our team partnered with the Lowell Parks & Conservancy Trust to tackle an invasive and fast-growing knotweed species near Concord River Greenway. The Trust’s mission is to create community through conservation, and our team was excited to dig in to help ensure one of the region’s favorite places remains safe and enjoyable.
Tooling Around Town
Members of our NY Metro team supported a local organization to help senior citizens, disabled, and low-income neighbors make their homes safe and welcoming. Our volunteers spent the day painting, staining, and making small repairs while building lasting relationships in their community.
The Holiday Project
Each year our Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania team provides meaningful gifts for children through the Allegheny County Holiday Project. 2021 was Evoqua's fourth year working with the Holiday Project and our team sponsored 145 children in their local community. With the growing number of children in the foster care system in Pittsburgh and around the U.S., gifts from the Holiday Project provide an invaluable sense of normalcy for children whose lives are shaped by daily challenges.
