Cradle to Cradle products
The certification process
In the certification process of the Cradle to Cradle standard, the entire life cycle of the products is evaluated, including supply chains, production and return to the biological or technical cycle. In addition to ecological criteria, social and societal criteria are also assessed.
Five performance criteria are used as a basis for this: Material health, product circularity, clean air & climate protection, water & soil stewardship and social fairness. The results are presented in the product register of the %22Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute%22 on a scorecard.

It is thus an example of a product that is certified according to the Cradle to Cradle Standard and meets the highest sustainability criteria.
