The Carbon Trust have released a new certification to award enterprises that successfully achieve ‘zero waste to landfill’.
The Carbon Trust 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, 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 a reduced landfill costs, as well as demonstrating their commitment to becoming a more sustainable company.
One of the first companies to achieve the new certification was ASSA ABLOY, one of the world’s largest lock manufacturers:
“Minimising and ultimately eliminating waste generation across all of our waste streams, where possible, is a real opportunity for us to greatly reduce our environmental impact. Working with the Carbon Trust was a really good chance for us to verify our zero waste to landfill achievements, with an independent and internationally recognised organisation. ASSA ABLOY and the Carbon Trust share the same values in fact-based transparency, which ensured the partnership was a great fit.”
