As the ZERO-WASTE movement continues to pick up momentum around the world, there are growing concerns surrounding greenwashing and unsubstantiated environmental claims.

After all, anyone can declare zero-waste credentials, and modern marketing has a subtly persuasive way of making consumers believe any given product or company is eco-friendly when it is, in fact, not.

Certifications show your business or organizationís commitment to zero waste.

They are a way to provide third-party verification of zero waste achievements, which can be useful when appealing to consumers or investors, as well as motivating internal teams to stay on board with and even lead zero waste initiatives throughout your company.

Additionally, certification programs can also help a business or organization progress further in achieving its zero waste goals. Most schemes provide a framework or guidelines to work within, and some offer training or advisory services that make it easier to successfully adopt operations. Having a third-party audit can also provide helpful insights on waste reduction and management that your organization may not have considered.
