Cradle to Cradle Product Standard Under Revision

Cradle to CradleThe Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard will be updated, and for the first time, outside input will be sought.

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute’s certification standards board, an independent entity, said it is seeking more stakeholders in an effort to bring more transparency to the process.

The standards revision will continue throughout the year and will culminate in a new Cradle to Cradle Product Standards Revision to be finalized in the first quarter of 2016.

The call for advisors with scientific, academic, and/or industry expertise will be spread across the following five fields:

1.     Material health examines whether ingredients are safe for human health and the environment

2.     Material reutilization evaluates whether products can return safely to nature or industry after use

3.    Renewable energy and carbon management measures the use of renewable energy in product manufacturing and assembly

4.     Water stewardship determines whether product manufacturing processes protect water supplies

5.     Social fairness evaluates the impact upon employees and communities involved in product production

This revision will result in Version 4 of the standard.
