Join us for the official launch of the Zero Waste Design Guidelines, an initiative of the Center for Architecture, in collaboration with the AIA New York Committee on the Environment, Kiss + Cathcart Architects, ClosedLoops, and the Foodprint Group. The guidelines will help New York City achieve its OneNYC plan, released in April 2015, which outlined a bold goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2030.

The Zero Waste Design Guidelines have been developed for architects and building professionals to help New York City achieve its OneNYC plan. Released in April 2015, the plan outlined a bold goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2030. Like the Active Design Guidelines, developed by city agencies in collaboration with AIA New York, with the appropriate dissemination, the principles of the Design Guidelines for Zero Waste, could become commonplace for developers and architects and could be required in city agency RFPs.
