Zero Waste Management System Certification

What's the Zero Waste Management System certification about?

It's the conformity assessment of the International Standard on Zero Waste Management Systems by an independent Validation and Verification Body (VVB).

The Zero Waste Management System (ZWMS) is a circular economy tool that promotes strategies for the reduction, reuse and recycling of materials and solid waste. Its high-level organizational structure is designed to enhance performance and efficiency over time.

The ZWMS empowers organizations to voluntarily pursue excellence in materials and solid waste management, aligning with the international Zero Waste model. As highlighted in the Gap Report 2023 humanity consumes an astounding 100 billion tons of materials annually, yet only 7.2% of these materials are recirculated. The implementation of the ZWMS significantly reduces the volume of waste generated daily and subsequently sent to final disposal, thereby contributing to a more sustainable future.

What is the process for obtaining certification in the International Standard Zero Waste Management System?

The ZWMS assesses the application of the 9 Rs (reject, rethink, reduce, reuse, repair, restore, remanufacture, recover parts, and recycle) within facilities, areas, processes, or waste. This assessment aims to promote the closure of technical and biological cycles and enhance the comprehensive management of solid waste. By doing so, it encourages the reduction and recirculation of materials, thereby fostering the creation of new markets and services within the circular economy worldwide.
