At Covanta, we believe the materials discarded everyday should be utilized to their fullest potential. We help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by avoiding methane emissions from landfills, displacing fossil fuel-based electricity generation and recovering metals from recycling. Our Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facilities have state-of-the-art air pollution control technologies, unlike landfills which often have uncontrolled emissions.
We are continually expanding our sustainable solutions portfolio so that we can help customers implement a complete “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover” waste management strategy. This approach captures a broad range of positive environmental impacts by diverting and/or eliminating waste streams normally headed for landfill.
Wherever we do business, we are deeply involved within the communities we serve and with our key stakeholder groups. We engage with our stakeholders on a regular basis to ensure that our presence and contributions to society are informed by and considerate of their interests, concerns and needs.
