Zero Waste


The Zero Waste Awards aims to build a community of sustainable businesses by recognising and rewarding organisations for their efforts in reducing the amount of their wasted resources.

By achieving a Zero Waste Award rating, you will not only be able to celebrate and promote your successes, but you will also have the opportunity to collaborate with more than 500 other likeminded winners, in addition to the scheme partners.

The scheme partners are specialists in their respective fields and happy to provide free advice and guidance to any Zero Waste Award Winners.
