Register for this Nov. 14 workshop by USGBC Minnesota to learn about the TRUE Zero Waste certification program.

About TRUE
TRUE Zero Waste is used by facilities to define, pursue and achieve their 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 and beyond.

TRUE certified spaces are environmentally responsible, more resource efficient and help turn waste into savings and additional income streams. By closing the loop, they cut greenhouse gases, manage risk, reduce litter and pollution, reinvest resources locally, create jobs and add more value for their organization and community.

In addition to the facility certification, GBCI also offers an opportunity for individuals to be recognized as zero waste experts through the TRUE Advisor professional certificate. Certificate holders have a practical understanding of the most current TRUE business principles and they demonstrate a clear commitment to professional growth in advancing TRUE values.

Continuing education
This program qualifies for 1 GBCI General and 1 AIA LU/HSW Continuing Educaiton Unit.
