Overview of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard

Version 3.0

This document provides an overview of the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Product Standard (Version 3.0). The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Product Standard (Version 3.0) replaces Version 2.1.1. The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation InstituteTM will begin certifying products using Version 3.0 of the Standard on January 1, 2013.

Suggestions for improvement of this standard should be directed to The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation InstituteTM, which took over the administration of the seven-year-old Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Product Program in 2012.

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation InstituteTM

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute administers the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Products Program. The Cradle to Cradle Certification Standards Board, using the Cradle to Cradle® framework, is responsible for reviewing and approving revisions and/or amendments to the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Product Standard and ensuring continuous improvement of products based upon five attributes: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. Products that meet the transparent criteria of this rating system will receive the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM certification mark for one of five levels. (http://c2ccertified.org)
