World Finance Magazine, a print and online magazine providing comprehensive coverage and analysis of the financial industry, international business, and the global economy, annually honors companies across a dozen categories ranging from Insurance and Banking to Corporate Governance. In 2019 as the issue of climate change rose to the top of the global agenda and businesses across the globe began to take real action to tackle climate change, World Finance introduced its inaugural Sustainability Awards, to honor companies that show a commitment to environmentalism and sustainability and are making the business world a much greener place. Casella is the first vertically integrated solid waste, recycling, and resource management services company to earn the award in the Waste Management Category.
Casella Waste Systems, Inc., headquartered in Rutland, Vermont, is the Northeast’s largest recycler and most experienced fully integrated resource management company.
