GERRIT BRUGGEMAN ELECTED AS NEW INSTITUTE BOARD CHAIR

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is pleased to announce the election of Gerrit Bruggeman as its new board chair. 

As a chief executive and key advisor, Gerrit has introduced and embedded the Cradle to Cradle principles into the culture and operations of leading companies around the world. Gerrit became acquainted with Cradle to Cradle during his tenure as CEO of Royal Auping, a Dutch bedding firm. Inspired by the vision of a world where safe materials and products are designed and manufactured in a prosperous, circular economy to maximize health and well-being for people and planet, Gerrit has since dedicated his career as CEO, board member and board advisor to supporting organisations in the transition towards sustainability. 

Please join us in congratulating Gerrit on his election, and in thanking the Institute’s outgoing chair Warner Philips for his service and leadership.
