What is Cradle to Cradle Certified®?

How we design and make products today shapes the world we will inhabit tomorrow. 

Cradle to Cradle Certified® is the global standard for products that are safe, circular and responsibly made.

Leading brands, retailers, designers and manufacturers across the value chain rely on the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard to ensure the impact of their products on people and planet is a positive one. For more than a decade, Cradle to Cradle Certified has been helping companies to innovate and optimize materials and products according to the world’s most advanced science-based measures.

Cradle to Cradle Certified assesses the safety, circularity and responsibility of materials and products across five categories of sustainability performance:

Material Health: ensuring materials are safe for humans and the environment

Product Circularity: enabling a circular economy through regenerative products and process design

Clean Air & Climate Protection: protecting clean air, promoting renewable energy, and reducing harmful emissions

Water & Soil Stewardship: safeguarding clean water and healthy soils

Social Fairness: respecting human rights and contributing to a fair and equitable society
