Celebrating commitment to zero waste
|Zero waste is no longer a utopian dream. The reality, which policymakers and waste producers are increasingly recognising, is that waste must end if our world is to become sustainable.|
Businesses, public authorities and third sector organisations are becoming more and more aware of the importance of zero waste. They want to be part of the sustainability solution, and the Zero Waste Awards recognises and rewards them for doing so.
All organisations who receive a Zero Waste Award will be invited to attend the annual recognition luncheon. Recipients of a Gold Zero Waste Award will receive further recognition for their commitment to reducing waste to landfill, being automatically entered into the Zero Waste Platinum category at the Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management. This year, the Zero Waste Platinum Award was awarded to KP Snacks.
Submitting an entry is straightforward and takes just a few simple steps. What’s more, entry is free of charge, and the rewards are hugely worthwhile. Why not give it a try?
The Awards have been established by letsrecycle.com, the news and information portal for the recycling and waste management sector, businesses and local Government. They are partnered by SAICA Natur, the multinational paper and packaging manufacturer and Wastecare, the national waste management experts.
