ISS Zero Waste Challenge exceeds target

To coincide with World Environment Day recently, facilities services provider ISS held its third annual Zero Waste Challenge (ZWC). Over 90,000 items were saved from being consigned to waste bins, exceeding the goal of 80,000 items.

ZWC began in 2016 as a waste reduction campaign in ISS for clients, partners and individuals. This year the challenge was open to all individuals and organisations. A total of 142 different organisations took part across 50 countries with 23 per cent of the 18,364 participants coming from external organisations.

The initiative, which was created by the waste services division at ISS UK, asks all involved to reduce their waste on the day, with activities as large or as small as each pledgee can achieve.

ISS believes that, as a sector, FM has has increased power in achieving sustainability via waste management. Service providers have the buying power to challenge its suppliers and partners to develop and provide more sustainable solutions which deliver sustainable initiatives for FM clients, customers and stakeholders.
