Cradle to Cradle & the GBCA
Responsible Products Framework
Cradle to Cradle Certified® Version 3.1 & 4.0 have been recognised by the GBCA under their Responsible Products Framework.
We have been actively engaged in Cradle to Cradle design with the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute for more than 20 years, introducing the first Cradle to Cradle Certified™ and PVC-free flooring product in 1999. Our EcoWorx® carpet tile has also recently achieved certification under the new, more rigorous 4.0 standard, making us the 1st product in the built environment globally to achieve this.
DID YOU KNOW? // Almost 90% of the products we manufacture are Cradle to Cradle certified, and we have ambitious goals to make that 100% by 2030.
