WES is a proud sponsor of the Renew Our Rivers Program. 

Renew Our Rivers began with one Alabama Power employee Gene Phifer, who had a vision to improve the health and beauty of the Coosa River near Plant Gadsden where he worked. Renew Our Rivers has grown from a single river cleanup event in Gadsden to a nationally recognized campaign that includes Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and the Florida panhandle.
 
The program brings together thousands of volunteers each year, and has removed more than 14 million pounds of trash from our southeastern rivers. Alabama trash alone removed totals more than 11 million pounds!


  
   
WES is now designated as a “Conserve Alabama Supporter” By the Alabama Soil & Water Conservation Committee
We are the first to be awarded this distinction
That distinction communicates a message that our company
 Exhibits a conservation ethic and stewardship that promotes conservation and sustainability of Alabama’s natural resources
Thank you Conserve Alabama for the honor of your support! For nearly 80 years, the Soil and Water Conservation Committee has committed to conserving Alabama’s natural resources by connecting those who use and work the land to the education, technical know‐how, and resources they need

Startups from Birmingham, Huntsville and Anniston will pitch their ideas before a panel of judges next month in hopes of winning a share of $250,000 in funding.
Alabama Launchpad, a 10-year-old program of the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama, has selected eight young companies from 17 applicants for its next round of competition. In addition to funding, entrepreneurs receive mentoring to help their businesses grow.
The startups will make their first pitches at 9 a.m. Feb. 19 at Evonik Industries in Birmingham. Select teams will then move on to the Alabama Launchpad Startup Competition Finale in early April.
"The year and the path ahead for our program are more exciting and even bigger than that was imagined when our program first launched back in 2006," Launchpad Programs Director Greg Sheek. "We look forward to continuing our important work with the next round of the competition to help high growth companies start, stay and grow in the state to create jobs."
