Most business leaders know the importance of green business operations, but some are hesitant to engage in the process for the lack of three key elements:

  1. An actionable and profitable sustainability plan

  2. A proven process to educate themselves and their teams for success

  3. Internal and external communication strategies that garner buy-in at every level of the business

Zero Waste Strategies is here to help.

Zero Waste Strategies helps businesses and organizations to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost their waste. We provide training courses, white papers, and advice on recycling, composting, reducing, and reusing your waste.

Lower Costs

investing in ecology

Save on costs when waste containers and hauler pickups are "right-sized" for specific business needs. This ensures optimization by avoiding too much bin capacity or a too frequent weekly collection schedule.

Positive Environmental Impact

Some estimates claim that as much as 97% of solid waste hails from commercial or industrial operations. Businesses that implement a Zero Waste program not only help save community landfill space, they also help spur economic growth and vitality by supporting the reuse, recycling, and food waste composting sectors.

Bankable Brand Image

Eco-friendly businesses can bank on being well- positioned to brand their products as healthier, more sustainable, and less impactful on the planet than industry counterparts. These businesses are ensuring readiness to tap into the core purchasing values of millions of customers whom align with corporate sustainability, social justice, and environmental protection.

Deepen Customer Loyalty

A recent IBM study found over 80% of consumers surveyed were ready to alter their shopping habits to support reducing environmental impact. Conscious consumers will seek out businesses authentic in their green initiatives and may result in deeper customer loyalty and increase the probability of gaining brand ambassadors.

Empower Employees

Implementing a corporate Zero Waste program can not only boost employee morale but also help attract top-tier talent to join the ranks and lower the costs associated with employee turnover. Empowered employees are more likely to participate in efforts, such as recycling drives, volunteer projects and operational changes.
