Golden Times for Sustainable Building
Thanks to their C2C Certified® Gold status, the metal ceilings aurum make a valuable contribution to greater sustainability in the construction industry. With the concept of circular building – implemented through the Cradle to Cradle principle – material cycles are closed and products are reused for as long as possible. Therefore, circular products are also considered the solution for the change in the building industry towards more resource conservation, less waste and lower CO2 emissions.
Cradle to Cradle Certified® is the globally recognised standard for designing and manufacturing goods that enable a healthy, equitable and sustainable future – and is therefore considered a distinguishing feature of circular and sustainable products. Unlike other certifications, which usually focus on only one dimension of sustainability, Cradle to Cradle certification looks at all aspects of sustainable development and production. The C2C Certified® evaluation system follows a point system, which divides the submitted products into the categories Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The rating is based on five criteria:
- material health
- material reusability
- climate protection and clean air
- water and soil stewardship
- social fairness
