We were honored to be recognized in 2016 for our commitment to Environmental Justice in Chester, Pennsylvania, where we operate our Delaware Valley Resource Recovery Facility. The Chester Environmental Partnership (CEP), of which Covanta is a long-standing member, recognized Covanta Vice President of Environmental Science and Community Affairs and CEP board member John G. Waffenschmidt for leading Covanta to become one of the first companies in the United States to establish a formal EJ policy.

“With John’s leadership, we have been able to improve the lives of Chester residents and further the environmental justice movement on a national level.”

Reverend Dr. Horace W. Strand,
CEP Founder and Chairman
