    IDC Webinar: Cradle to Cradle Certified & LEED - Multi-attribute Inventory, Assessment & Optimization (1 IDCEC hour HSW)

    This webinar is delivered in English.

    Cradle to Cradle philosophy was first outlined by William McDonough and Michael Braungart in the book Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the way we make things. It centers on an ambitious goal: products should have a positive impact on health and the environment. The Cradle to Cradle Product Certification Program provides strategies to realize this goal. The multi-attribute assessment evaluates all material and associated processes against standards in five categories: material health, material reutilization, water stewardship, renewable energy & carbon management, and social fairness.

    The Cradle to Cradle Product Certification Program helps consumers compare and select the best materials for human health and environmental sustainability. This course will introduce version three of the Cradle to Cradle Certified CM protocol, now managed by the non-profit Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. We will provide detail on how each of the five attributes is evaluated by independent assessors and outline the process for third-party verification. The course will also outline how Cradle to Cradle Certified CM products can contribute to LEED projects.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Articulate the five attributes of Cradle to Cradle Product Certification, why they are important, and how they are measured
    • Reference each level of certification (basic, bronze, silver, gold and platinum) and know what that says about a product in each of the five attributes
    • Understand how Cradle to Cradle design has been applied to common products in the built environment
    • Use C2C Certified products where appropriate to meet client goals and objectives, especially related to LEED and other green building projects
