SJMConsults Receives Zero Waste Business Associate Designation

Toronto based SJMConsults is proud to announce its successful completion of the Zero Waste Business Associate (ZWBA) certification program.

The Green Business Certification Inc (GBCI) oversees the global implementation of the Zero Waste facility certification program and other environmental sustainability and efficiency based certifications such as LEED and Sites. The Zero Waste certification is GBCI's facility based scorecard program where applicants must achieve a minimum of 90% diversion from Landfill and Incineration. This standard was created by the Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA) and US Zero Waste Business Council (USZWBC).

Scott J Morrison, a previous Board and Certification Committee member of ZWIA, brings 14 years of environmental sustainability consulting to his clients. “Waste, recycling and material management is changing rapidly. It is paramount that I can deliver smart, agile solutions to my clients. I’m confident that the addition of the ZWBA designation assures my clients that the highest standards in material management are being met.”

The ZWBA credential is mandatory for anyone applying for the GBCI Zero Waste facility certification program. SJMConsults offers certification assistance for a number of environmental efficiency and sustainability based certification programs such as B Corp, Golf Environment Organization and ISO 14001.

I’m a customer that just came in for a tour, “What is B Corp?” and “Why did you choose to become involved?”
A B-Corp is a Benefit Corporation, meaning a business that chooses to act as a force for good in the world. As a Certified B-Corporation, Beau’s meets higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. We chose to become a B Corp for a number of reasons – to set an achievable example for other businesses, to give our customers the assurance of a third-party endorsement of our commitment to social good and the environment, and to help us build a roadmap for sustainable growth as a brewery.



As the B Corp Certification is …
