Are you on a pathway towards a circular economy? Do your stakeholders want proof that your products comply with a circular economy? Want to know more about Cradle to Cradle Certification® (C2C)?
C2C is one of the world’s most advanced certifications for products that have a positive impact on people and the planet. It is based on a design approach that brings together safe materials, product circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship, and social fairness.
Eagle Lighting’s Educo Vitality recently became the first luminaire in the Southern Hemisphere to gain the certification. Nicole Sullivan, our Head of Strategy & Impact Australia, talks to Eagle Lighting’s Engineering Manager Mark Antonello and Lighting Solutions Manager Ian Johnson about the process, what they have learned and how the company is benefitting from the certificate.
The webinar will cover:
- What is Cradle to Cradle Certified?
- Who can gain C2C certification?
- What is the C2C standard assessing?
- How do businesses create value through the C2C certification?
It will be useful for:
- Product Developers
- Product Managers
- Sustainability Managers
- Environmental Managers
- Marketing Managers
