Technical Advisory Groups

Technical Advisory Groups are standing committees of the Standards Steering Committee tasked to address specific topics related to development of the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard. In addition, they advise and make recommendations to the Standards Steering Committee and Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute staff regarding best practices and technical aspects of current and proposed standard methodologies and requirements, as well as their application and feasibility in the marketplace.

The Technical Advisory Group members listed below supported development of Version 4.0 of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard, which was released in March 2021.

A new group of Technical Expert Advisors will be formed in 2023 via a public call for applications to support future Standard development.
