SJMC Recieves TRUE Advisor Designation

Toronto based SJMC is proud to announce its successful completion of the TRUE Advisor certification program.

The Green Business Certification Inc (GBCI) oversees the global implementation of the TRUE 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 16 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 TRUE Associate designation will continue to assure my clients that the highest standards in material management are being met.”

The TRUE Advisor credential is mandatory for anyone applying for the GBCI TRUE Zero Waste facility certification. SJMConsults offers certification assistance for a number of environmental efficiency and sustainability based certification programs such as B Corp and LEAF.
