Zero waste practices support the triple bottom line, and designers play a key role in the success of zero waste initiatives. Well-designed waste stations and storage space are necessary to correctly separate and divert waste. Without sufficient dishwashers, zero waste dining is difficult and costly to achieve.
Total Resource Use and Efficiency (TRUE) Zero Waste is the first program dedicated to measuring and improving zero waste system performance. Administered by Green Business Certification Inc. and supported by the USGBC, TRUE evaluates how well facilities perform in minimizing their nonhazardous solid waste and maximizing resource use efficiency. TRUE sets a high bar by going beyond diversion and focusing on upstream policies and practices.
Join Urban Green for a zero waste webinar on May 21. Celeste McMickle of TRUE, Clare Miflin from the Center for Zero Waste Design, and Krietta Marley from Foodprint Group will discuss TRUE certification and the importance of zero waste from design to certification.
Registration will be through Urban Green’s GoToMeeting site. If you’re a member and would like the discount code for this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
