Green construction company Nexii has achieved the TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) Gold Certification for Zero Waste for its Squamish Manufacturing Plant (pictured).
This achievement makes Nexii the first construction manufacturing company in North America to receive this prestigious recognition.
Nexii’s Squamish Plant has demonstrated its commitment to waste reduction by implementing best practices for waste management at every stage of its manufacturing process. The company’s efforts have significantly reduced the amount of waste produced by the plant, with over 90 percent of waste diverted from landfills.
Speaking to the achievement, Zosia Brown, VP of Sustainability of Nexii, said, “We’re extremely proud to have achieved the Zero Waste certification for our Squamish Manufacturing Plant. This recognition reflects our unwavering commitment to sustainability and reducing our environmental impact. We’re honoured to be leading the way in the construction industry for zero waste and circular practices.”
The TRUE Certification for Zero Waste, administered by Green Business Certification, is a rigorous evaluation of a company’s waste reduction efforts, including the implementation of robust recycling and composting programs, reduction of materials used, and diversion of waste from landfills.
Nexii retained the services of Vancouver-based sustainability consultant, Light House, to facilitate TRUE credit documentation and submission. Achieving the certification is a significant milestone for Nexii in its journey towards eliminating waste at every point of the construction value chain.
