MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry, LLC) a global consultancy helping clients create a positive footprint on the planet by implementing the Cradle to Cradle® framework, has certified more than 300 products since the program launched in late 2005. The framework is based on the book by internationally recognized architect/designer William McDonough and chemist Dr. Michael Braungart Cradle to Cradle – Remaking the Way We Make Things, published in 2002 by NorthPoint Press.

Cradle to Cradle Certification by MBDC gives global manufacturers across industries a way to verify and market their products’ sustainability attributes and demonstrate environmental leadership. The certification process takes into account five criteria: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use, water stewardship and social responsibility. Companies incorporate these criteria into future product development to create a continuous improvement and learning cycle. The program has four achievement levels: Basic, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Cradle to Cradle Certification can be applied across industries, from building materials to consumer products.
