Overall Product Scoring – Cradle to Cradle C2C Basic Certification, Cradle to Cradle C2C Bronze Certification, Cradle to Cradle C2C Silver Certification, Cradle to Cradle C2C Gold Certification, Cradle to Cradle C2C Platinum Certification, Cradle to Cradle C2C Standard

A product receives an achievement level in each category — Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum — with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark. The chart below is an example of a product scorecard:

A continuous improvement standard

The certification process recognizes transition and human intention as part of any successful protocol for continuous product improvement. The program also recognizes that any manufacturer’s knowledge may vary widely regarding the chemicals used in a product, the extent to which the materials in a product can be reused in biological or technical cycles, and the energy and water used to produce a product. The goal of continuous improvement is not “zero” or simply reducing the human and environmental impact of a product, but instead combines the progressive reduction of “bad” with the increase in “good.” See the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard for more information on the requirements for product optimization.

Every manufacturer receiving the certification mark for their product is required to make a good faith effort toward optimization.

At the Basic level, a product is just starting out on the path to certification. A company must do a Basic inventory of materials, energy use, water use, and social fairness issues affecting their industry and production region.

The Basic level of certification has been designed to get companies ‘in the door,’ establishing a commitment to ongoing assessment and optimization. As such, the Version 3.1 Basic level certification is a ‘provisional’ certification, meaning that a product may only be certified once at this level, and must re-certifiy at a higher level or lose certification. Products certified at the Basic level under Version 3.1 do not display the logo on their product, but may refer to it online and in print marketing materials.
