Careers with Purpose
Become a Protector of Tomorrow
At Covanta, the work we do is more than just a job. It’s a commitment to environmental problem-solving and sustainable progress—to do all that we can to safeguard the future of our people, our planet and our shared prosperity. Building a safer, smarter world is no simple task, but it is something we can achieve together. Join us in protecting tomorrow.
Dedication to Integrity, Innovation and Inclusion
We value the unique viewpoints and experiences of the people we serve and those we employ. After all, innovation happens when diverse perspectives find their voices through open dialogue in a supportive environment. Town hall meetings, employee resource groups and community outreach programs provide abundant opportunities for the infusion of fresh ideas.
We recruit people with varied backgrounds and experience levels to create a work environment where employees learn from one another and enjoy fulfilling careers.
A Commitment to the World We Share
Each year our Waste-to-Energy facilities reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing four million cars from the road, while keeping more than 20 million tons of waste out of landfills.
But reducing pollution, fighting climate change and preserving valuable resources are just a few of the ways that we work to protect tomorrow. The full picture of what we do is much broader, extending to environmental and community volunteerism, stewardship and education to encourage sustainability and adoption of a more circular economy in the communities and businesses we serve.
Joining Our Team and Finding Success
Making a difference on a global scale, or even a personal one, is never easy. It takes focus, dedication and talent. It is also important to prioritize what matters to you. We recognize that work-life balance is an essential component of mental well-being, so we provide our teams with comprehensive tools and benefits to help them lead their best lives inside and outside the workplace.
Join Us in Creating a Sustainable Future
From the plant floor to the corporate office, Covanta employees share a common commitment to the three pillars of sustainability – people, the planet and prosperity. Our culture is one of purpose and teamwork, inspiring our dedicated professionals to create a world where no waste is ever wasted.
