Cradle to Cradle Certified Certification Scheme

The intention of the Certification Scheme is to create a functional and scalable framework designed to implement the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Products Program, which is administered by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (C2CPII).

By adopting ISO-based internationally recognized organizational structures and practices, the Certification Scheme will achieve greater transparency and recognition. In turn, adoption of these international norms will help generate the global spread of Cradle to Cradle® principles into practice.

The proposed structures are designed to encourage innovation, continual improvement, and independence of all involved parties, while advancing the goals of Cradle to Cradle thinking and development as enacted by the C2CPII through the certification process.
