At Covanta, our mission is to ensure that no waste is ever wasted. It’s our business, our purpose and our value proposition to recover, recycle and reimagine waste, extracting the highest value from the byproducts of daily life. We create value from waste by: reducing contributions to climate change by diverting waste from landfills and using it to generate renewable energy; helping our customers mitigate risks and meet their sustainability goals; and recycling valuable materials from the waste stream. This model makes us an integral contributor to a more sustainable future.
Covanta regularly reports on our progress in sustainability through reports prepared in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. Our latest report details specific progress in Covanta’s sustainability focus areas, which include: Environmental Performance, Resource Management, Community Relations and Workforce Engagement.
