Kilroy’s 350 Mission Snags World’s Largest Zero Waste Certification

Kilroy Realty Corporation’s 350 Mission Street in San Francisco received a TRUE Zero Waste Certification (gold level) from USGBC. The 30-story, 455,340-square-foot tower is the largest single commercial property in the world, and first commercial building in San Francisco, to achieve such recognition.

Kilroy’s Maya Henderson says, “Undergoing the rigorous TRUE certification process also had the added benefit of helping to optimize building operations and cost savings.”

The USGBC system enables facilities to define, pursue and achieve zero waste goals, cut their carbon footprint and support public health. The waste diversion threshold for TRUE Zero Waste certification is 90%, and 350 Mission Street achieved 91.9% diversion in addition to meeting other rigorous performance requirements.

The latest sustainability honor adds to the asset’s already LEED Platinum, ENERGY STAR and Fitwel certifications. The building is leased by salesforce. com, and located at Mission and Fremont Streets, directly across from the Transbay Transit Center.
