SL Green Realty Corp. will participate in the New York City Mayor’s Zero Waste Challenge in partnership with two of its tenants across two million square feet.
The Challenge is a voluntary pilot program that encourages businesses to support a commitment to sending zero waste to landfills by 2030.
To meet the Challenge’s parameters, SL Green will expand on its waste management strategy through a three-step process: Source separation of all recyclable materials on site; Composting of organic waste onsite; Donation of all excess organic waste.
“We will navigate best practices to set a precedent for others in our industry and continue to focus on our market leading sustainability program,” said Edward V. Piccinich, Director of Management & Construction for SL Green. “It is critical to pre-emptively align our waste strategy with relevant City goals and regulations.”
