Covanta’s CEO Pledge to Advance Diversity and Inclusion
In 2019, Covanta joined CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance D&I within the workplace.
The initiative includes nearly 700 leaders from U.S. companies and academic institutions that have pledged to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives are welcomed, where employees feel encouraged to discuss D&I and where best practices can be shared across organizations.
At Covanta, we believe that people are our most valuable asset, and the diversity and inclusion of our workforce is key to our success. By embracing diversity, we are fostering a work community that opens minds and opportunities—one that helps Covanta grow stronger as a company. We are proud to sign on to the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge as we continue work towards a complete culture of acceptance, tolerance and individuality so we can all learn and grow together.
As part of our commitment, our Vice President of Continuous Improvement will be joining the CEO Action as part of a one year fellowship to help identify, develop and promote scalable and sustainable policies and corporate best practices to address systemic racism, social injustice, and improve societal wellbeing.
