Social investment at Cenovus

We understand that we play an important role in helping to solve some of society’s biggest challenges and are committed to making social investments – financial and beyond – to make people’s lives better. To achieve this, we partner with others and mobilize our employees through Cenovus Cares, our giving and volunteering program.

Our Social Investment Strategy is designed to fund and co-create inclusive solutions for society, the environment and the economy. Our approach is focused, holistic and inclusive, leveraging our core assets and making purposeful investments of financial and human resources to help solve key social issues of importance to our stakeholders and strengthening the communities where we operate.

Focus areas

We’re focusing our efforts on key issues within four focus areas that align with our purpose and values, commitment to inclusion and diversity, environmental, social and governance (ESG), and business priorities.
