Send completed documents to ToxServices, and a detailed time and cost estimate will be prepared for you. The manufacturer has not received a significant violation of their discharge permit within the last two years. They can be incinerated or composted and used as humus – a superfluous option at this time as there is a waste paper collection system in place. A few months prior to certification renewal date, you will receive a letter of notification and a renewal packet from ToxServices. The ToxServices certification packet must be completed with all necessary information included. Working with the product manufacturer and suppliers, each product formulation is broken down into its chemical constituents down to 100 ppm (0.01%). The core of the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ product evaluation involves partnering with the product manufacturer on data collection and product evaluation. Cradle to Cradle Certified directly fosters responsible consumption and production by providing a continuous improvement pathway for manufacturers to produce products in a sustainable way, and by providing a means whereby manufacturers, institutions, and consumers can identify and select sustainably produced materials and products. The presence of any chemicals from the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ “Banned List.” There are two lists: a banned list of chemicals for technical nutrients and a banned list of chemicals for biological nutrients. Products that are entirely BN in nature (e.g., cosmetics, personal care, soaps, detergents, etc.) When emissions are eliminated, renewable energy is produced in excess to be supplied to local communities. MBDC, creators of the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program, and Circular Economy advisors Eco Intelligent Growth (EIG), have assessed the first Platinum certified fabric for C&A. ���J���n��;��ㄼ�TK�AS��|�a�a����P8�!��a���t"Q�Q The manufacturer has completed a “nutrient management” strategy for the product including scope, timeline, and budget. For the final manufacturing stage of the product, 50% of purchased electricity is renewably sourced or offset with renewable energy projects, and 50% of direct onsite emissions are offset. Demonstration of progress on the management plan is required for re-application. HYGINOVA Bentley’s High PerformancePC broadloom products and NexStep® and AFIRMA™ carpet tile products are Cradle to Cradle certified at the Silver level as of November 2013. To become certified, an applicant must submit formulation information and related data to ToxServices to have the product assessed against the requirements of Version 3 of the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard. ToxServices submits the completed Certification Packet and supporting documentation to the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (C2CPII) for review and approval. Product meets Cradle to Cradle Certified™ emissions standards. The Renewable Energy combines two significant principles: produce and use renewable energy and eliminate the concept of waste. The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute reviews the ToxServices Certification Summary report to ensure completeness and accuracy. All process chemicals have been assessed and none have been assessed as X. " are 100% assessed. Two of the Silver-Level requirements are complete. The product has been at least 95% assessed (by weight) using ABC-X ratings.

As an authorized Cradle to Cradle Certified™ assessor, ToxServices evaluates healthy and sustainable products under the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program in five product categories: Material Health, Material Reutilization, Renewable Energy Use, Water Stewardship, and Social Responsibility; and at five levels of certification: basic, bronze, silver, gold, and platinum, with each higher level addressing … In addition, the entire production process of the mill in Munkedal was inspected and achieved the Bronze Level, which therefore represents the overall level of product certification. For Cradle to Cradle certified products, IPG’s Manufacturing was audited to ensure that both the Energy and Water Categories have minimal impact on the environment. A statement of water stewardship intentions describing what action is being taken for mitigating the identified problems and concerns is provided. The C2C-Centre was founded in 2012 by the C2CExpoLAB as part of its broader ambition to become the front-runner on the regional application of the C2C principles. The product has a Material Reutilization Score that is ≥ 35. Cradle to Cradle Certified products are awarded at five levels (BASIC, BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD, and PLATINUM), with each level imposing a more rigorous set of requirements. Fax: 202-429-8788 Cradle to Cradle® is a form of product certification based on a concept devised back in the Nineties by Professor Michael Braungart and William McDonough. A facility-level audit is completed by a third party against an internationally recognized social responsibility program (e.g., SA8000 standard or B-Corp). h�bbd```b``Z"=�d2�d��"����`v�� fׂIv0yDځe��H� Ri�� $9�A� � ���d�ۢtH~�y�� �i �+�L�g`�� � ��X In addition, the entire production process of the mill in Munkedal was inspected and achieved the Bronze Level, which therefore represents the overall level of product certification. Renewable energy dislocates energy produced from fossil fuels, which emit carbon. Several of our products have obtained the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Bronze. The product does not contain any Banned List chemicals based on supplier declarations. L�ѐ������)K�`Q�n�jMI�d�=�fqb2B����,&�\��?$g�+*S�WJ The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program calls for materials to be characterized as technical or biological substances (nutrients) that are safe and healthy for people and the environment. The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Products Standard is a sustainable certification system. The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program was founded in 2005 by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC). The purpose of this list is to create a threshold to prevent unreasonable products from entering the system and to protect the positive values of certified products and of the certification program. It evaluates the circularity of materials and products, resulting essentially in a waste free ecosystem. are 100% assessed.

To date, nearly 400 products and 90 companies have already demonstrated the attainability and advantages of designing products according to the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ framework. In order to achieve Cradle to Cradle Certified™ certification at a certain level, the product and manufacturing processes must meet the criteria at that level in all five categories. The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program encourages manufacturers effectively manage water recourses and respect the need for humans and environment to have clean water. Cradle to Cradle Certified™ provides a framework for designing and manufacturing safe, circular and responsible products and materials that maximize health and well-being for people and planet.
