New Carbon Trust Waste Standard

New Carbon Trust Waste Standard

The Carbon Trust Waste Standard has now been launched after a pilot phase where a number of early adopters have already demonstrated compliance.

The new Carbon Trust Waste Standard is an internationally recognised certification awarded to organisations that measure, manage and reduce their waste output, year on year.

  • Landfill from ´╗┐commercial and industrial waste generates 2.3 2.3 MT Co2e annually
  • It is estimated that 11.2 billion tonnes of solid waste is generated each year across the globe.
  • the decay of the organic parts of this waste contributes approx 5% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
  • In the UK alone the waste sector is responsible for 17 MtCo2e per annum
The essential point is that preventing, reusing or recycling waste rather than depositing it in landfill reduces emisission and resource consumption, an essential feature of the 'circular economy'.
The Carbon trust aim to encourage take up by empahsising;
  • Enhanced corporate reputation
  • Increased brand value
  • Cost savings
  • Customer engagement
Early adopters report significant reductions in the amoun of waste taken to landfill and excellent repuational benefits, particularly for a major professional services consultancy.
