A Standardized Framework for Zero Waste and Sustainable Materials Management
Times are listed in Pacific Standard Time
The Solid Waste Environmental Excellence Performance (SWEEP) Standard for sustainable materials management is the first national standard defining environmental performance in the waste industry. SWEEP covers the top 75% of the market with the SWEEP-Zero standard addressing Zero Waste, SWEEP+ certifying the top quartile and the SWEEP Standard that addresses the middle of the market. Management guru, Peter Drucker, famously said, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” At SWEEP, we say, “You can’t measure what you haven’t defined.” Attendees will learn about the development and content of the SWEEP+ standard and hear from participants in the Pilot Program. Attendees also will learn about the initial framework being developed for the SWEEP-Zero standard and how participants can progress toward Zero Waste through SWEEP.
