Landfill-Free Verification

Reduce the amount of waste your company generates and save money on resources.

NSF verifies an organizstion’s waste management processes against uniform criteria to provide third-party assurance that less than 1% of waste is going to the landfill.

Landfill-free practices help companies establish circularity by eliminating waste and optimising resources. Generating less waste reduces CO2 emissions as well as raw material, energy and labor costs. It can also build a stronger company culture by integrating sustainability practices and engaging employees to contribute ideas.

Consumers prefer to buy products they perceive as having a lower impact on the environment, and landfill-free verification demonstrates environmental leadership and social responsibility through an independently verified claim.

We verify that companies have documented where every piece of waste is going and that they have systems in place to reduce waste as well as reuse, recycle or compost materials. We also conduct an annual on-site audit to verify that organisations continue to operate landfill-free.

  • West Liberty Foods did not just want to claim we were a landfill-free company. We wanted to prove it. From day one, NSF has been a great partner. I’m proud that West Liberty Foods was one of the first companies in the United States to be verified as landfill-free.

  • Having our breweries go through the NSF verification process encouraged us to look further upstream at the way that our products are being designed and consider the full life cycle of the materials we use.
