SVP, Chief Human Resources Officer, Covanta
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 our daily life.
We create value from waste in three primary ways: reducing contributions to climate change by diverting municipal solid waste from landfill and using it to generate baseload renewable energy; helping our customers reduce risks and meet their sustainability goals by safely and responsibly disposing of operational waste; and recycling valuable materials from the waste stream.
With a global total of about 4,000 employees, Covanta is headquartered in Morristown, NJ. We have more than 40 Waste-to-Energy facilities in North America, and operate a facility in Dublin, Ireland. Four more facilities are currently under construction in the United Kingdom, with the first scheduled to start full operations in 2022. We also have a subsidiary business, Covanta Environmental Solutions, that delivers world-class enterprise waste services that protect brands, reduce businesses’ disposal costs and inspire sustainable change within their operations and the circular economy.
