Discover why glass is more environmentally responsible than ever with Cradle-to-Cradle certification

Ultimate sustainable design


Green homes are helping to protect the world around us and preserve it for future generations. Even more, they are bringing a host of practical benefits, like greater comfort and lower energy bills. So, which building materials are proving to be the most eco-friendly, healthy, safe and able to deliver positive benefits – now and for years to come?

This is the challenge that inspired William McDonough and Dr. Michael Braungart to develop the Cradle to Cradle philosophy. Their visionary approach is to look at materials in terms of five categories: Material Health, Water Stewardship, Material Reutilization, Renewable Energy and Social Fairness – to find which minimise impact and maximise gain.

Cradle to Cradle: for healthier design

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (a non-profit organisation) has become a global agent of change - empowering companies to commit wholeheartedly to sustainability in its broadest sense. Its rigorous standards have been embraced by AGC Glass Europe – world leader of flat glass – that wanted to ensure its products are as sustainable as possible. Glass already has the benefit of being infinitely recyclable, but having won the nod from C2C (Bronze and Silver creditation), it’s now supporting communities and the natural world too.
