C2C Certified Material Health Certificate™

This certificate assesses that a product is safe for humans and the environment. Based on the assessment methodology set out in the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard for the Material Health category, this certificate verifies that chemicals and materials used in the product are selected to prioritize the protection of human health and the environment, generating a positive impact on the quality of materials available for future use and cycling.

Consumers and industries are increasingly interested in knowing more about the chemicals used in products across their supply chains and avoiding chemicals of concern. The C2C Certified Material Health Certificate™ offers a solution to this.

Using the rigorous, globally recognized Material Health methodology of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard, it provides you with a trusted way of assessing and verifying your work towards safer product chemistries. The certificate can be obtained in two different ways:

  1. As a standalone building block on the pathway to full Cradle to Cradle Certified certification.

  2. As an addition to your full certification, to comply with external requirements or have an extra proof of your product’s material health.

The Material Health certification process is the same as the Cradle to Cradle Certified certification process. Material Health certification is not a substitute for full product certification under the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard.
