GBCI Unveils Zero Waste Facility Certification

10/11/2016 |

Facilities that divert more than 90 percent of waste from landfills are deemed successful at achieving zero waste

GBCI and the U. S. Zero Waste Business Council (USZWBC) announced they are joining together to take a step forward with zero waste business practices. USZWBC will be integrated into the international GBCI community that initiates sustainable practices across all sectors.

GBCI, as the exclusive provider of third-party certification and professional credentials for the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED green building rating program, is well-positioned to involve market leaders in accelerating the adoption of zero waste strategies by building upon the work and mission of USZWBC.

Zero Waste Facility Certification is based on the peer-reviewed, globally accepted definition of zero waste developed by the Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA), and has been aligned with credit requirements of LEED for Buildings Operations and Maintenance (LEED O+M). Businesses, organizations and communities that divert more than 90 percent of waste from landfills, incinerators and the environment are considered to be successful in achieving zero waste.
