A world where safe materials and products are designed and manufactured in a prosperous, circular economy to maximize health and wellbeing for people and planet.
To lead, inspire and enable all stakeholders across the global economy to create and use innovative products and materials that positively impact people and planet.
Cradle to Cradle Certified™ is a globally recognized measure of safer, more sustainable products made for the circular economy. 2020 marked the ten-year anniversary of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute and their vision for a world where safe materials and products are designed and manufactured in a prosperous, circular economy to maximize health and well-being for people and planet.
Product designers, manufacturers and brands around the world rely on the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard as a transformative pathway for designing and making products with a positive impact on people and planet. From fragrances to flooring, t-shirts and jeans to water bottles and window treatments, thousands of products are Cradle to Cradle Certified. More now than ever a growing number of brands, organizations and standards also recognize Cradle to Cradle Certified as a preferred product standard for responsible purchasing decisions.
To receive certification, products are assessed for environmental and social performance across five critical sustainability categories: material health, material reuse, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. A product is assigned an achievement level (Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) for each category.
