This tragedy is especially difficult to comprehend following the recent shooting in Buffalo, New York, where the victims were targeted because of their race. These senseless and unthinkable acts challenge our humanity and highlight our common vulnerabilities.
It is natural to feel anxious and distraught during times of significant turmoil like these. We ask that you give each other space and time to grieve, each in our own personal ways, as these feelings may be overwhelming even if we do not have a direct connection to the events.
We strive to create an inclusive and supportive environment at Covanta. We need to be there for each other as we search for the resilience to carry on in the face of these horrific tragedies. If you see any fellow employee showing signs of crisis or stress, please show empathy.
We also encourage you to participate in any local events or drives to support the impacted communities. Stepping up to help, even in a limited fashion, is a positive way to respond to tragedies such as these.
