Zero Waste and Recycling:
How Companies Manage Green Messaging

Everyone seems to be headed toward “zero waste,” but sustainability and green claims related to leading-edge waste management practices are subject to increasing scrutiny from NGOs, competitors, supply-chain partners and consumers. Without systems in place to substantiate such claims, even the most well-intentioned companies can inadvertently put their reputation at risk.


Strategies to Eliminate Waste and
Achieve Zero Waste

With growing attention on responsible material management, many businesses are facing increasing pressure to reduce waste generated from operations and to divert waste from landfills. Recognizing that waste equates to lost resources and profits, forward-thinking organizations understand that reducing all forms of waste is crucial to an effective and sustainable business strategy. Tad Radzinski, a former EPA Waste Minimization Program National Expert, and Annie Bevan, Certification and Operations Manager at GreenCircle, share key strategies and case studies to help organizations eliminate waste, achieve waste diversion or zero waste goals, and effectively communicate waste diversion success.
