Event Description

Join this exciting Circular City Week panel as we discuss a variety of tools available for facilities, haulers, and municipalities to achieve large-scale reductions in landfilling waste through emerging programs and zero waste practices.

Together and individually LEED for Cities, TRUE and SWEEP support greater understanding of circular practices and a road map to get there swiftly and successfully. Hilari Varnadore LEED for Cities, Rob Watson of SWEEP, and Celeste McMickle of TRUE will present three unique yet complementary certification tools to help our cities and facilities become more circular regarding their resource consumption and waste generation and processing.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the different scales these tools have to offer from the TRUE standard which is primarily focused on getting to zero waste facilities and portfolios, to the SWEEP Standard for Sustainable Materials Management, primarily used at the municipal government and waste industry service provider level, and finally the holistic approach of LEED for Cities on zero waste planning and comprehensive resource circularity at the larger scale.

Jerome Tinianow will lead the panelists in an engaging conversation to discuss the structure credits and requirements of TRUE, SWEEP, and LEED support and complement one another: the importance of the right combination of policy, operations and infrastructure to closing the materials cycle loop; the role of sustainable materials management in reducing the carbon footprint of the built environment.
