Why a Zero Waste quality mark?

With the quality mark, you demonstrate that as an organisation you:

  • work from a visibly sustainable business.
  • have brought all internal processes and procedures to the 'new' zero level of residual waste.
  • comply with laws and regulations.
  • project a better market image to all stakeholders.
  • have less impact on the environment.
  • have organised guaranteed knowledge assurance.
  • constantly ensure the best possible waste management.

Some use it as evidence for their CO2 reduction plans, others for their tenders. With the quality mark, you demonstrate that your entire internal organisation has been brought to the 'new' zero point for residual waste.

What are the advantages of a Zero Waste quality mark?
