Carbon Trust launches new certification

The Carbon Trust has launched a new certification for companies that achieve zero waste to landfill.

Its standard for zero waste to landfill recognises an organisation’s achievements in reducing its environmental impact through actively diverting its non-hazardous waste streams from landfill by reducing waste, reusing materials, increasing recycling or sending waste to energy recovery.

This provides framework for verifying zero waste to landfill claims, which aligns with the existing Carbon Trust standard for waste. This supports organisations that want independent and credible recognition of their achievements in improved waste management.

The organisation independently certifies companies that achieve year-on-year reductions of their environmental impact on three main components, carbon, water and waste, using a framework to improve sustainability and efficiency in resource management.

Companies with a zero waste to landfill target benefit from savings through better use of resources and reduced landfill costs, as well as demonstrating their commitment to becoming a more sustainable business.
