Carbon neutrality, or having a net zero carbon footprint, refers to achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing a measured amount of carbon released with an equivalent amount sequestered or offset, or buying enough carbon credits to make up the difference. We are in the process of auditing our company carbon emissions and are on track to be a carbon neutral company by the end of 2016.
Zero waste to landfill is where no waste streams go to landfill. Instead, materials are diverted to other uses, for example: Cardboard goes to paper mills Glass goes to be re-melted Plastic goes to be made into new packaging Food waste goes to our worm farm. Waste which cannot be re-used or recycled is recovered via methods such as energy from waste, incineration, plasmosis and gasification. We have reduced our landfill waste to one small bag per month and we are on track to be 100% 'Zero Waste To Landfill' by the end of 2016.
