- Verification Process
The responsible and sustainable use of our resources has been a concern for businesses and society for decades, and the diversion of waste from landfill is one of the more significant environmental issues facing society today. Achieving landfill-free status is a significant accomplishment and companies demonstrating environmental leadership and social responsibility can now have their environmental claim verified through a reputable, independent third party.
The NSF-ISR Landfill-Free Program establishes uniform criteria to evaluate and verify an organization's waste management processes and grants recognition to companies that can demonstrate that less than 1 percent of process waste is being sent to landfill.
