Landfill-Free Verification

Become recognised for your social responsibility and environmental leadership. Our landfill-free verification programme utilises a structured process to verify an organisation’s waste management processes against our consensus-developed guideline to grant recognition to companies that send less than 1 percent of waste to landfill.


Reducing the amount of waste your organisation generates not only helps to reduce emissions — landfills are the third largest human-generated methane source in the world, releasing an estimated 92.7 million metric tons of CO2 in the USA in 2016 — but can also save your organisation money.

NSF customer MillerCoors’ Milwaukee, WI (USA) campus is realising a savings of about $89,000 per year from landfill-free efforts.
