About this webinar
To uncover why the 540 WORLD showcase was the most visited stand at London’s Futurebuild 2020 by 1400%, (in case you missed it) we invited some of their favourite, game-changing industry experts to deliver one key angle of business that collaboratively showcases their ‘secret’ for successful, authentic sustainability and circularity. They all highlight that the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program with its unique, holistic, five category approach to accrediting safe and sustainable products and materials is to them the clear world-leader in evidence-based, safe, circular, sustainable products certification.
540 WORLD is driving a materials revolution in the UK in the built environment through education, policy and business change, namely showcasing authentic safe and circular design solutions through commercial collaborations. In this webinar, we are pairing Dr Christina Raab, vice president of strategy for the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, who will outline the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program, with multi-sector business experts actively engaged with Cradle to Cradle Certified™ materials from chemistry to tiles, glass and waste fibre materials to steel and strategy.
540 WORLD believes that the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program is undoubtedly the leading, multi-attribute, multi-industry, science-based standard for verifying products for the circular economy – a program that rigorously examines products through multiple categories, particularly through material health, circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship and social fairness.
This fantastic collaboration of experts explains gold standard sustainability at it’s very best for the health of people and planet in this one-hour webinar followed by an open question time.
