Zero Waste to Landfill - Achieving the "Impossible"


Superior Essex and J+J Flooring Group First in
Their Industries to Reach Zero Waste to Landfill


Waste Diversion from Landfill is becoming a critical key performance indicator for companies across industries. Achieving Zero Waste to Landfill, or Landfill Free status, represents the highest commitment to responsible material management and delivers significant value. In today's market it seems that another corporation is going "landfill free" every week. As waste diversion standards are being developed, there has been a lack of consistency across organizations and industries, leaving consumers to wonder, "How can I trust this claim, and what does landfill free really mean?"


One avenue credible organizations are taking is to have their waste diversion from landfill claims verified by GreenCircle, ensuring accuracy in accounting and full transparency. Recently, the Superior Essex Hoisington, Kansas Facility and J+J Flooring Group's Dalton, Georgia Facility achieved the Zero Waste to Landfill milestone, cementing their positions as leaders in their respective industries. Resulting from years of source reduction, strategic partnerships, and innovation, accomplishing this impressive feat was no easy task for either company.


"We are proudly certified as a Zero Waste to Landfill manufacturer by GreenCircle Certified, LLC. We are the first commercial flooring manufacturer in the United States to achieve this landfill free status and the first company in the industry to have its waste diversion efforts audited and verified by a recognized third party." - J+J Flooring Group  


"This achievement is the result of many years spent devising new ways to continuously reduce waste, and a testament to the dedication and hard work our Hoisington plant employees exhibited in reducing our environmental footprint," says Tony Szot, Plant Manager of the Superior Essex Hoisington facility. "Through these continued efforts, we have kept tens of millions of pounds of waste from reaching landfills."

Benefits of Waste Diversion Extend
Beyond Market Appeal


Our audits and certification provide substantial value beyond marketing. They identify overlooked inefficiencies and opportunities for improvement. In fact, Superior Essex utilized its first GreenCircle waste diversion audit to improve upon its 91% diversion rate in 2014 to reach Zero Waste to Landfill status in 2015, as well as strengthen employee commitment to this mission.

As the world population and global economy continues to expand, many corporations are taking large-scale resource depletion into consideration, and adapting their business plans to mitigate resource risks. While many of these scarcity strategies extend far into the future, one resource is becoming an immediate cause for concern for companies with potential supply risks in as little as one year. Water is often perceived as the most abundant resource on the planet, but, as many are already realizing, this is not the case. Over half of the largest global companies recognize that they are open to water-related risks, and many believe water scarcity could hinder business growth in the short term. Join moderator Tad Radzinski, panelist Kim Marotta of MillerCoors, and a representative from the U.S. EPA Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water to learn the risks water scarcity is posing to businesses; how organizations are addressing water dependency in their operations and throughout the supply chain; and how some forward-thinking organizations are leveraging this global problem to foster innovation and create value.
