Cradle to Cradle Certified ®
"Waste is food" is the slogan of the Cradle to Cradle Certified ® philosophy, which revolves around the circular economy. Cradle to Cradle Certified® is a programm that evaluates products and materials on different aspects: the use of sound materials, the reuse of these materials, the use of renewable energy, responsible water management and the social justice and ethics of a company. Each aspect is examined separately and given a basic, bronze, silver, gold or platinum score.
The fact that Cradle to Cradle Certified® is the new standard for the circular economy is demonstrated by the increasing number of certified products each year. Beddeleem also took the lead in this regard in 2016, becoming the first and only manufacturer in the world to offer a partitioning system that achieved the silver level.
More and more products are designed with the future in mind. How will the product be recycled/reused in x years ? How much energy is used in the production process and how much ? How much water is used and does it return to nature ? These are just some of the questions that are asked when obtaining the Cradle to Cradle Certified® certificate.
When the certificate was renewed, Beddeleem expanded its collection with the JB PURE 100 double-glazed wall system. This glass partition with a minimum of profiles is characterised by a sound insulation of up to 51 dB.
The JB 4000, JB FLUSH, JB PURE 50 and JB PURE 100 glazed partitions are silver and bronze certified, depending on the choice of glass. The JB 2000 full partition with metal panels is bronze certified.
This certificate means for our customers that they can gain up to 2 extra points in a LEED project by using our walls. BREEAM-NL projects can also get extra points in the chapters "Building materials" and "Confirmed origin of materials" by using Cradle to Cradle certified products.
