Cradle to Cradle products

The “Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute”, based in San Francisco, certifies particularly sustainable products according to the Cradle to Cradle Certified® product standard. This globally recognised standard assesses the recyclability and sustainability of products and is the most advanced standard for safe, recyclable and responsibly manufactured materials and 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 “Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute” on a scorecard.

An example of Cradle to Cradle certified products

In the evaluation of these five criteria by the “Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute”, the product DERIX X-LAM achieved “Gold” four times and “Platinum” once in the category “Material Health”. It is thus an example of a product that is certified according to the Cradle to Cradle Standard and meets the highest sustainability criteria.

Sustainable building with wood

Wood is a renewable and natural raw material that stores CO2 and thus relieves the environment. Buildings made of wood thus have a positive effect on the atmosphere and always remain a source of raw materials due to the reusability of wood.
