The foundation of a zero waste program is facilitating a closed-loop supply chain and focusing on the highest and best use of all materials. Commodity pricing in the U.S. has been decreasing, and as a result, materials are being sent to landfills and incineration, instead of being put back into a circular economy. The TRUE Zero Waste certification system can make a difference.
The TRUE Zero Waste certification system helps facilities quantify performance and find additional ways to improve progress toward zero waste. This summer, the "TRUE Core Concepts" free webinar series can help zero waste professionals and teams advance company strategies and dive deeper into the TRUE Zero Waste Rating System.
