Our Cradle to Cradle Certified products

The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Products Standard is a sustainable certification system. It evaluates the circularity of materials and products, resulting essentially in a waste free ecosystem. Several of our products have obtained the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Bronze.

The Cradle to Cradle (C2C) principle is based on the biomimetic approach. It means that all materials and products belong to a continuous biological or technical cycle. In this sense, all possible components needed for the production and use of products, should focus on high-quality and circularity. The final goal: a waste free ecosystem.

The Cradle to Cradle design model

This is described in 2002 by Michael Braungart and William McDonough in their book Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things. It forms the basis for the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard, established by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.

The ultimate goal is to encourage innovation and the design of products that effectively and positively impact people and the environment.

The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Products Standard

This sustainable certification system evaluates and continuously improves products across five categories of human and environmental health:
 

  1. Material reutilization.
  2. Material health.
  3. Renewable energy.
  4. Water stewardship.
  5. Social fairness.

More than high-quality insulation and durable material

Our certified products not only offer great aesthetic value. They also ensure high-quality insulation and durable material. Moreover, it pays to build with C2C certified Our certified products not only offer great aesthetic value. They also ensure high-quality insulation and durable material. Moreover, it pays to build with C2C certified materials for architects and builders. After all, the principles of the Cradle to Cradle certificate closely match BREEAM and LEED. These are the internationally recognized quality labels that determine the sustainability level of buildings. In this way, C2C certified systems offer a guarantee to build in an environmentally conscious manner.
