About Us

Working towards a world without waste through public education and practical application of Zero Waste principles.

The Zero Waste International Alliance has been established to promote positive alternatives to landfill and incineration and to raise community awareness of the social and economic benefits to be gained when waste is regarded as a resource base upon which can be built both employment and business opportunity.

The simple technology and methods required to achieve Zero Waste exist in every community around the world. The Zero Waste International Alliance can connect you to leaders in the field who can provide your community with the models, the projects, the people and the means to help you develop Zero Waste as your ultimate goal.

The Zero Waste International Alliance will:

  • Initiate and facilitate research and information sharing for the promotion of Zero Waste
  • Build capacity to effectively implement Zero Waste
  • Set standards for the application of Zero Waste

The Zero Waste International Alliance operates at the international, national and local level and will involve all sectors of society.
