From Waste Management to Resource Management
Planeet Consulting is a Zero Waste consulting firm based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Our vision is a zero-waste world where materials are resources—not waste! Our mission is to support neighbourhoods, businesses, and municipalities to further zero-waste and pave the way toward a sustainable and resilient society and planet.
We co-create Zero Waste solutions with your neighbourhood, business, or municipality. Our solutions will help you reduce waste from the source; keep materials in the loop; uncover the value of your discards; reduce carbon emissions and costs associated with waste management; and meet evolving expectations of customers, community members, and regulators.
Through the implementation of Zero Waste solutions, you will engage those who work with you and the community you operate in and will advocate for a larger systemic change that will pave the path towards circularity and a better planet.
We’ll start small, learn and grow together
No matter where you are on your path, we’re here to help you move in the right direction and achieve your goals with confidence. Keep reading to learn how.
Zero Waste Audit
You can only manage what you can measure
The Zero Waste Audit will provide you with a snapshot of the flow and use of materials at your facility. It identifies how to start preventing waste in the first place, reduce costs, and uncover opportunities for avoided costs. It also creates a baseline of the type and amount of discards that your facility generates, which will help you document and measure your progress.
Zero Waste Certification
Share your achievements with the world
Our third-party certification with Zero Waste Canada helps you set specific goals, track your progress, and become recognized for your waste-reduction achievements. It also helps your customers and staff understand why, what, and how you’re doing it, which allows them to become part of the process and your success story.
Going beyond building walls
We explore what’s already happening in your neighbourhood or municipality through our holistic approach to zero waste. We identify existing and potential zero-waste initiatives in the community, people’s motivations and barriers, and the opportunities and challenges to scaling them up. We provide the baseline from which we can further prevent and reduce waste, connect people, and move towards circularity.

Planeet Consulting is a proud member of
We respectfully acknowledge the land on which we gather as the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, whose culture has now been erased forever. We also acknowledge the island of Ktaqmkuk (Newfoundland) as the unceded, traditional territory of the Beothuk and the Mi’kmaq. And we acknowledge Labrador as the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Innu of Nitassinan, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut, and the Inuit of NunatuKavut. We recognize all First Peoples who were here before us, those who live with us now, and the seven generations to come. As First Peoples have done since time immemorial, we strive to be responsible stewards of the land and to respect the cultures, ceremonies, and traditions of all who call it home. As we open our hearts and minds to the past, we commit ourselves to working in a spirit of truth and reconciliation to make a better future for all.
