Justice, Circularity Overhauled in Cradle to Cradle v4
The latest version of the Cradle to Cradle product standard also expands embodied carbon requirements and replaces the controversial “banned list” with a new approach.
The Cradle to Cradle (C2C) product standard just got much more stringent. So stringent, in fact, that the lowest level of the new version 4 (Bronze) “in many categories is better than v3 Silver,” said Matteo Kausch, Ph.D., director of technical development at the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (C2CPII). Here’s a look at what’s changed.
Unlike in prior years, the development of v4 included extensive stakeholder engagement through a formal public comment process. “We were grateful to have so much feedback,” said Peter Templeton, president and CEO of C2CPII.
