Cradle to Cradle Certified, Version 4.1

We are building the path to a healthy, equitable and sustainable future.

The new Version 4.1 standard will be effective 1 July 2024; from this date, the Institute will start accepting applications.

Concurrently, it will also release a suite of guidance documents to assist users in navigating the updated standard, and new communication tools to support communication of certification achievements, in alignment with the new European Union legal requirements on green claims. The resources underscore our dedication to ensuring that all program participants are well-equipped to meet the challenges of sustainable product design and to communicate their achievements confidently.
