Can your facility or campus meet TRUE Zero Waste Certification requirements? GBCI’s TRUE Zero Waste certification program is used by facilities to define, pursue and achieve your zero waste goals, cutting their carbon footprint and supporting public health. The certification goes beyond diversion numbers and focuses on the upstream policies and practices that make zero waste successful in any organization.
WasteCap’s TRUE Advisors will help you save money, reduce liability, increase efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and give your company a marketing edge.

Registration & Application
WasteCap will complete the registration process on your behalf. WasteCap’s TRUE Advisor will collect information, perform analyses, complete scorecard narratives and prepare documentation demonstrating that the requirements of the selected credits have been met.
Additionally, WasteCap will create a transparent project management website to house your project’s information and update it annually for ongoing certification.
An on-site assessment by the GBCI’s Assessor is a critical part of the certification process. WasteCap will coordinate with the facilities team to schedule the assessment and compile any additional information/documentation required to confirm compliance with outstanding credits.
WasteCap will analyze the GBCI’s Review Reports (Preliminary Review, Mid-Review Clarifications and Final Review) to provide additional information or contest the ruling of each credit.

The TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) Zero Waste certification is a program of the GBCI (Green Business Certification, Inc.). TRUE certified spaces are environmentally responsible, more resource efficient and help turn waste into savings and additional income streams.
The TRUE Zero Waste certification program is an Assessor-based program that rates how well facilities perform in minimizing their non-hazardous, solid wastes and maximizing their efficiency in the use of resources. The Assessor is an impartial third party that delivers services under the direct supervision of GBCI, and is expected to review and assess compliance with the rating system requirements.
