The architectural community drives sustainable construction

How construction products are designed and selected today shapes the world we will inhabit tomorrow. That is why we joined the movement that is rethinking, redesigning, and transforming the system one sustainable facade at a time. Cradle to Cradle Certified® provides architects with fact-based, at-a-glance assurance that EQUITONE’s facade materials meet some of the world’s most rigorous sustainability standards.

What is Cradle to Cradle Certified®?

The Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard is the leading multi-attribute standard used globally for designing and making products that enable a healthy, equitable, and sustainable future. It is widely regarded throughout the building industry as the preferred sustainability standard.​


How Cradle to Cradle Certified® is awarded

Certification is awarded based upon independent assessment of a product or material according to five critical categories of sustainability performance:

  • Material Health
  • Product Circularity
  • Clean Air & Carbon
  • Water & Soil Stewardship
  • Social Fairness

Sustainability is a journey not a destination. Bronze is just the beginning…

At EQUITONE, we’re leading the way in contributing to the sustainability goals of the construction industry.  Achieving Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze is an important milestone on our path to circularity, and our fibre cement materials are already earning performance ratings of Silver for Material Reutilization and Social Fairness. We are working hard to accelerate advancements in the carbon, water, and energy footprint of our operations.
