A PATH TO ZERO WASTE


Every day, NYC produces about 50 million tons of garbage. To reduce this number, designers and operators must rethink how buildings use and process materials.

TRUE Zero Waste, supported by USGBC, is the first certification program to help building professionals implement and quantify zero waste initiatives. TRUE goes beyond recycling diversion by looking at the entire lifecycle of materials.

On May 22, join Urban Green for a webinar about the importance of zero waste design and key lessons from the TRUE program.
