Building a better future, 1% at a time

Building a better future, 1% at a time

In 2021, Coveo joined industry leaders like Salesforce, Atlassian, and Yelp in the Pledge 1% movement. Our commitment is to donate 1% of our time, products, profit, and equity to non-profits.

At Coveo, we chose Knowledge and Education to be at the center of our 1% Pledge. Our initiatives will prioritize programs for young people (aged 6 -18 years old) in vulnerable social groups.

Visual of commitment to donate time, products, profit, and equity to global non-profits.

Education is key to empowering people to do more on their own. And, one of the best ways to make a lasting impact on society. We believe that knowledge and education are key levers in reducing inequality and poverty, promoting wellness, and broadening opportunities. We call it 'democratizing knowledge'.

Our commitment to sustainability

Our in-office sustainability keeps growing. This means renewable energy in Montreal and Quebec City. Ecological waste reduction and management programs. Recycling batteries and electronics -- even donating refurbished devices to charitable organizations.

We're on a path towards powering our operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025. By adopting solutions like our cloud supplier Amazon Web Services, we're minimizing the effects of energy consumption and waste on our planet.

The Coveo team wants to do their part, too. So, we’re encouraging them by reimbursing monthly mass transit passes for anyone who chooses public transportation.

We are making donations to organizations working on improving quality of life and sustainability practices. (Ex: Environmental Defence Canada)

Discovery and investigation into industrial standards for environmental practice certifications are underway: from BCorp, to ISO and more. In addition, a partnership for in-depth evaluation of our carbon emissions.

Our commitment to diversity & well-being

Leveraging multiple perspectives is the only sure way to overcome organizational challenges. That’s why we hire, develop, and promote with diversity, equity, and inclusion in mind. Read more about our Inclusion Committee here.

Our people are our greatest asset. And we know that nurturing their growth is the key to keeping the best talent around for the long run.
