Join the Cradle to Cradle Certified Assessment Body Network

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is expanding its worldwide network of Cradle to Cradle Certified Assessment Bodies. Organizations committed to technical quality, scientific rigor, innovation and positive market transformation are invited to submit their qualifications.

The Institute is on an exciting path with the upcoming release of the new version of the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard, which is considered to be the world’s most advanced, science-based measure for transforming the safety, health, circularity and sustainability of materials and products across major sectors and industries.

The underlying Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program is rapidly becoming the leading recognized framework for assessing, optimizing and verifying all aspects of product design and manufacturing across five comprehensive categories: Material Health, Product Circularity, Renewable Energy & Climate, Water & Soil Stewardship and Social Fairness.

In support of the Institute’s growing community and scaling of impact, we are seeking to expand our assessor network and are inviting organizations worldwide to submit qualifications to become a Cradle to Cradle Certified Assessment Body and/or a Cradle to Cradle Certified Material Health Assessment Body. On behalf of the Institute, these assessors provide guidance to companies working to achieve product certification and assess products to determine fulfillment of Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard requirements.

We currently welcome submissions for qualification from organizations that meet the eligibility criteria and share our guiding principles of technical quality, scientific rigor, innovation and positive market transformation through Cradle to Cradle Certified. 

We invite you to review the Request for Qualifications, which outlines the services required, the selection criteria, as well as instructions for online submission by 31st of July 2020.
