Event description
This workshop will provide a zero waste overview and how you can begin your journey to improved performance with the TRUE rating system.

About this Event

Want to learn more about how your business or institution can advance its solid waste and recycling goals with fiscally responsible strategies? This workshop will present TRUE, a rigorous new standard which moves beyond recycling by focusing on how we operate our facilities.

TRUE (Total Resource Use & Efficiency) Zero Waste Certification enables facilities to define, pursue and achieve their Zero Waste goals while reducing their carbon footprint, supporting public health and maximizing profits. TRUE certification, offered through Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), is a program for facilities to assess performance in reducing waste and maximizing resource efficiency. GBCI continuing education credits will be available to attendees.

Attendees will learn from Susie Westrup, Director – Client Solutions, about the TRUE process and how to begin your journey toward zero waste. Additional presentations will include case studies from early adopters of TRUE and other local leaders focused on how thoughtful waste and materials management systems are protecting the environment and contributing to a circular economy.

This informative and interactive educational workshop will equip you with tools and resources and help you discover the environmental, economic and financial benefits of TRUE Zero Waste.

Learning Objectives:

• Define the TRUE Zero Waste Rating System and its key components

• Identify tools and information for defining metrics and creating a diversion tracking and reporting system
