Giving Back

Energy Recovery is committed to giving back to the communities where we do business. We do that by investing our time, talents, and treasures with organizations that are committed to developing children and young adults. We believe we can improve the lives of young people by giving them an opportunity to learn and grow through programs that educate, mentor and foster wellness.

We are proud to see California businesses like Energy Recovery stepping up to join in this relief effort.” – Larry Olmstead, President/CEO, United Way of Northern California For more information, please visit United Way: https://www.norcalunitedway.org/camp-fire
