Cradle to Cradle® is internationally known and has recently generated great interest among many players in the Danish building industry. This manual describes how actors in the Danish construction industry can work with Cradle to Cradle® in practice and gives concrete examples of methods, strategies and tools related to construction phases.
The manual differentiate itself by not being a certificationsystem with checklists and fixed values, but an open platform for innovation and new business models, where the ambition is to bring the planet's resources in cycles.
The manual is the most comprehensive publication on Cradle to Cradle® inspired construction practices to date, and is richly illustrated with explanatory drawings and photographs. It was written in a collaboration between Vugge til Vugge Denmark, 3XN’s innovation company GXN and in consultation with the founders of Cradle to Cradle®, William McDonough and Michael Braungart.
