Join us for the next USGBC Northeast Florida Innovation Forum!
This forum will be an introduction and overview to Zero Waste Facility Certification created by U.S. Zero Waste Business Council and administered by Green Business Certification Institute (GBCI).
Zero Waste is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, guiding people to change their lifestyles and practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use. Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources and not burn or bury them. Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land, water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health.
