Tervita Vision, Mission & Values

January 2020, we launched our newly defined values internally to our employees.  Before we could do our external launch, we faced a challenge that none of us foresaw. During these times we have solidified our values and applaud our employees for living them every. single. day.

At Tervita, our values are not just buzzwords. They mean something. To our leadership, our employees, and our customers. They help to guide us in everything we do.

Creating a better future through global leadership in environmental and energy solutions.

We care for our world. Through innovation, science, knowledge and experience we help our clients, communities and governments ensure responsible and sustainable development of our resources while demanding safety, enhancing efficiency and minimizing the environmental impact.

We are committed to protecting the health, safety and well-being of our people and customers by:

  • Taking ownership of our actions and delivering on our commitments.
  • Doing the right thing by following these values, even when no one is watching.
