In order for points to be awarded under the ‘Waste from Operations’ credit, an Operational Waste Management Plan (OWMP) that addresses the treatment of waste from operations, must be in operation throughout the performance period.
The OWMP may be a standalone plan or a part of a more comprehensive Environmental Management System (EMS), as long as it can be demonstrated that the plan has been implemented at the building level and meets the requirements as outlined within the credit.
Once the OWMP is in place and operational, points are awarded based on the amount of operational waste that is diverted from landfill by weight.
