Version 3 of the C2C product standard incorporates a number of changes, structural as well fundamental, wherein existing criteria have been toughened and new criteria added in each of the five categories. Development of Version 4 is under way at the C2C Institute and is expected to be completed in 2019.







The higher standards prompted AGC to intensify its efforts at all levels, especially for float glass, where major investments have been made in the Renewable Energy & Carbon Management Strategy. Concerning our Float Glass, Matteo Kausch, Director of Technical Development, Cradle-to-Cradle Products Innovation Institute, had this to say:




"I would like to congratulate AGC on recertifying AGC Float Glass at the Silver level under version 3. I know this was a long and challenging process, but it also represents a significant accomplishment. No other product with such an energy-intensive manufacturing process has managed to achieve this so far (…).




With Cradle-to-Cradle certification under version 3., AGC confirms its commitment to continually improve the environmental performance of its products.
