As we have grown, we have committed ourselves to corporate responsibility. We believe in being a positive economic force, a responsible citizen in our communities and a mindful steward of the resources we consume.

Developing the Future of Financial Wellness
While the Envestnet Platform empowers advisors with the tools that drive success in their business, we recognize that financial wellness must start before becoming an investor or working with an advisor. Envestnet is committed to developing financial literacy and an understanding of the financial services industry, to enable the future of Financial Wellness.

Dedicated to Our Communities
Envestnet has a vision to transform wealth management for the benefit of investors and the advisors who serve them. Envestnet Cares takes that vision one step further by empowering employees to make a positive impact in their communities.

Envestnet Cares

Envestnet Cares is an employee initiative with the objective of making a positive philanthropic impact in our communities. By fundraising, donating time, or leveraging digital and financial expertise, employees support organizations that help others move forward and reflect Envestnet’s core values.
 
Envestnet has organized its charitable initiatives in four primary ways:
01.
Signature Impact
Signature Impact initiatives focus on fostering long-term partnerships with charitable organizations in the communities where we do business. Long-term commitments provide a more predictable source of funding to our charitable partners and provide a way for Envestnet to create more meaningful and lasting impact through targeted efforts to support education and families in need.
02.
Annual Corporate Giving
Envestnet supports a wide range of charitable organizations with a primary focus on issues of education and children and families in need. Annual gifts are identified by Envestnet employees and are facilitated through the Envestnet Cares Committee. Envestnet’s annual giving is meant to be flexible and more opportunistic in responding to more immediate needs in our communities, including disaster relief efforts.
03.
Volunteering
Direct engagement and service to others is central to Envestnet’s charitable giving strategy. Envestnet supports employee volunteering—whether independent or through organized volunteer events by each office--by providing paid time off and funding for employee volunteer events.
04.
Employee Charitable Giving Match
Envestnet multiplies and empowers the generosity of employees with charitable matching – for each personal gift by an employee to a registered charity, Envestnet matches the gift up to $2,500 per year.

Envestnet Cares produces an annual Charitable Giving Report. Click here to view the 2019 report.

Advancing Diversity & Inclusion in our Workplace
Envestnet’s Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) was created in early 2019 in an effort to better understand how we can use our internal strengths and experiences to help women develop to their fullest potential by providing greater focus on and support for women. WIN gives women tools, training, and networking connections to advance in their careers and build a platform for them to succeed.

The Women’s Initiative Network:

Supports Envestnet’s culture of innovation and collaboration by fostering a diverse, inclusive environment
Provides the tools and leadership skills necessary for career development
Broadens professional networks
Empowers and educates women of all ages and backgrounds both internally and in our communities
Committed to Data Stewardship
As a financial technology platform, Envestnet has a responsibility to employ leading risk management and security measure for the handling of sensitive personal financial data.
To provide consumers peace of mind that their personal information is treated with utmost care, we have created our own standard of care for data, which we call data stewardship.

We encourage all providers and users of consumers' financial data to adhere to the principles of data stewardship and to treat consumer data like the valuable asset it is.
Conscious of our Impact on the Environment
We are conscious of the environmental footprint of our office locations around the country, and are working to reduce our impact through targeted initiatives to minimize waste.
 
At our offices in Chicago, Redwood Shores, and Seattle, we work with caterers who partner with Copia, an organization that helps businesses redistribute high-quality excess food to feed people in need. Copia has created a technology platform to feed the community, save money, and reduce waste. To date, they have recovered one million pounds of food, delivered 900,000 meals, and diverted 3.5 million pounds of CO2e through their efforts.
Our Chicago office participates in the Keurig Green Mountain's Grounds to Grow On® program, an initiative to collect and recycle brewed K-Cup® pods. On average, we have recycled 1,387 pounds of plastic on an annual basis since we started the program in early 2018.
