The January 2023 quarterly TRUE rating system and guidance addenda is now available. To view the changes, visit the addenda table and search for 1/1/23.

This release includes an update to the text of five different credits within the TRUE Rating System and Technical Guidance for Events to provide small updates to the language and clarity of credit expectations. A few key points to look out for include:

  • Updated language to match the most current version of the ZIWA Zero Waste Hierarchy of Highest and Best Use
  • Small updates to Potential Strategies information to improve clarity of recommendations

What are addenda?

Addenda are official updates that incorporate changes and improvements to the TRUE rating system and other published guidance documents to help clarify, correct, interpret or provide alternative language. Addenda should be referred to in conjunction with the TRUE rating system and other published guidance documents.

With future versions of the rating system, addenda will be incorporated into that update. Addenda are designed to be a midway step to an official version update, to address needed changes to the rating system.
