Fabrics from KADECO awarded “Cradle-to-Cradle” certification

Cradle to Cradle certification

From cradle to cradle, from ownership to use: the non-profit organisation Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is dedicated to an alternative to the throwaway society – and has awarded the fabrics in various of our collections with the bronze certificate for being particularly sustainable.

What does Cradle to Cradle mean?

Produce, consume, throw away: the overwhelming majority of consumer goods in the world are produced with this intention. This means that the raw materials are usually lost. The non-profit organisation Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute wants to do things differently. Their approach is best summarised as the “perfect circular economy”. The aim is to create an infinite biological cycle. The concept includes environmentally friendly production and use of renewable energy every bit as much as fair working conditions. Consumer goods are designed so that they can sensibly be recycled, for example through chemical or mechanical processes.

Certificates for our fabrics

We put sustainability into practice - and are proud to be one of the first companies in the industry to have been awarded the prestigious Cradle to Cradle bronze certificate. This certification is valid for fabrics from our roller blind, panel track and vertical blind ranges and confirms that we are well on the way to using valuable raw materials in a way that is environmentally friendly and recyclable. To meet the requirements, all of the materials were analysed for their toxicological properties and recyclability and were optimised.

More than 75% of the contents of bronze certified fabrics meet the C2C chemical analysis. Other conditions for certification were proof of our energy footprint, the quantity and quality of water required and compliance with social criteria.
