New Carbon Trust certification

The Carbon Trust has launched a new certification to recognise companies that have successfully achieved zero waste to landfill. It recognises an organisation’s achievements in reducing its environmental impact through actively diverting its non-hazardous waste streams from landfill, typically through a combination of reducing waste, finding ways to reuse materials, increasing recycling or sending waste to energy recovery.

The new standard provides a robust framework for verifying zero waste to landfill claims, which is fully aligned with the methodology of the existing Carbon Trust Standard for Waste. This supports the increasing number of organisations that want independent and credible recognition of their achievements in improved waste management. Although a substantial commitment for a business, a zero waste to landfill target can produce tangible savings, both through better use of resources and reduced landfill costs, as well as demonstrating their commitment to becoming a more sustainable company.
