Renewable Energy Company Stands Out For Its Commitment to Mississippi Community

Sponsored by What's this?

Enviva’s roots run deep in Lucedale, Mississippi.

Even though Enviva became part of the community only two years ago, this small town has always felt like home to the renewable energy company. Whether a back-to-school drive, hurricane relief, beautifying a senior center, or creating memories at the annual watermelon festival, Enviva’s support of this local town is personal – “we live here, too.”

Enviva, a leading global energy company specializing in sustainable wood bioenergy, owns and operates 10 wood pellet processing plants and six deep-water export terminals in the U.S. Southeast, employing more than 1,200 workers. Across the company’s footprint in seven states, Enviva’s dedicated community relations team seeks to empower the communities where they live and work by partnering with local leaders, clergy, nonprofit organizations, and elected officials. Through outreach, volunteer activities, and direct sponsorship, Enviva provides a hand up in times of need -- school supplies, food bank donations, Wi-Fi, support during the COVID-19 pandemic -- as well as empowerment opportunities such as educational and workforce development program partnerships.

“We’re always eager to help where we can,” Enviva Community Relations Manager Rick Frederick says. Creating a brighter future, together.
