Planeet Consulting

Make a Better Planet

Uncover the Value of Your Waste

Planeet Consulting is the first Zero Waste consulting firm in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our mission is to move our province towards circularity.

We do so by working with your business or organization to develop Zero Waste solutions that will help you reduce waste from the source; uncover the value of your discards; reduce carbon emissions and costs associated with waste management; and meet evolving expectations of customers, communities, and regulators.

Through the implementation of Zero Waste solutions, you will engage your supply chain 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.

How we help YOU

“Even a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.”

Whether you’re wondering how waste can help your business or are already uncovering the hidden potential of waste, we’re here to help you move in the right direction and achieve your goals with confidence.

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 wasted materials 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.

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.
