FM Roundtable: Zero Waste

Synopsis of Program: Zero waste is a philosophy that utilizes the implementation of strategy, resources, and innovative tools in order to completely eliminate waste rather than manage it via landfill. Zero waste companies are not only beneficial for the environment but also the economy and many communities around the world.

Top 3 key points/takeaways from the presentation:

  • Developing programs and policies for reducing.

  • Reusing and recycling materials that would otherwise be destined for less desirable outcomes.

  • How to be a zero waste company leading the charge.
