The Zero Waste rating system is relaunching as TRUE


Thank you for your support and leadership over the years. Our community has been dedicated to helping organizations and their facilities pursue and achieve their zero waste goals. Together, we have worked to rethink how resources flow through our businesses, facilities, government agencies, universities and more in an effort to divert waste from the landfill, incineration (waste-to-energy) and the environment. Through our zero waste certification, we are helping facilities cut their carbon footprint, become more resource efficient, support public health and save money.

Last year, the U.S. Zero Waste Business Council joined forces with Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) to advance zero waste business practices and policies. As part of this, our certification program was fully integrated into the global GBCI community that drives sustainability across all sectors. We joined GBCI’s portfolio of rating systems, which includes LEED, the world’s most widely used green building rating system. GBCI is the premier organization independently recognizing excellence in green business industry performance and practice globally. Since announcing our partnership, we have been focused on exploring new ways in which our zero waste program can help transform the built environment and ensure a sustainable future for all.

That is why it gives us great pleasure to announce that on Sept. 7 we are officially re-launching our Zero Waste rating system as TRUE (Total Resource Use & Efficiency). A press release will be distributed that day and our new website will officially go live. We are excited about all the new resources, tools, case studies, educational offerings and events that will be made available over the next few months. Please check back often!

We could not be more excited about this news and hope that on Sept. 7 you will join us in sharing this milestone with your colleagues and community. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

Don’t forget to register for this year’s Greenbuild International Conference & Expo in Boston from Nov. 8-10. TRUE and zero waste will be featured throughout the conference at workshops, in engaging sessions and at our interactive exhibit hall.

Let’s continue to celebrate a zero waste future for all!
