ZERO WASTE BUSINESS CERTIFICATION SYSTEM
The USZWBC is developing a third party certification system for businesses that meet the Zero Waste Principles of the Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA). This will be the preeminent program for rating how well businesses perform in minimizing their discarding of non-hazardous solid wastes and maximizing their efficiency in the use of resources.
USZWBC will include different levels of certification, for different specialties, and across sectors, e.g., retail, hospitality, health care, property management and manufacturing. This is the missing link in green certification programs that will address how non-hazardous solid wastes are handled.
