About this Event

A current buzzword, what does zero waste mean—is it really zero? Spoiler alert: no, it’s a goal (and more reasonable than you would think), however some companies and individuals are very, very close.

Rosanne will talk about zero waste plans in other cities in Texas. Caroline will talk about deconstruction and using reclaimed building materials in Houston, a strategy that con-tributes to zero waste. Steve recently became accredited as a TRUE Advisor and will talk about the very new Total Resource Use and Efficiency Rating System. Yes another rating sys-tem, but it gives insight into the magnitude of solid waste and how costly it is to entities. Ever hear the maxim “You can’t manage what you don’t measure”? Welcome to the TRUE Rating System. When you start measuring, the waste of money of the waste starts to become visi-ble. CEU’s available.
