2019 Stakeholder Panel

In 2019, we continued the tradition of reaching out to our stakeholders by convening a panel group comprised of select subject matter experts closely connected to Covanta from among the following stakeholder groups: academia, clients, customers, community members, investors and business partners.

In cooperation with an independent third party, we conducted a set of interviews and a group panel discussion over the course of two months. We gathered feedback on Covanta’s ongoing sustainability management strategy and corporate disclosures. The expertise and insights shared on Covanta’s material ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) topics through this process confirmed the basis for the disclosures in this report and further supported Covanta’s strategic planning and goal setting looking forward. Panelists also reviewed drafts of this report to further enhance and strengthen Covanta’s approach to disclosure.
