Cradle to Cradle® Roadmap

Ecology, Equity, & Economy TriangleThe Cradle to Cradle® framework guides companies to go beyond typical eco-efficiency measures of reducing harm and work towards the goal of a wholly positive impact on economy, ecology, and equity. MBDC will partner with you to design a Cradle to Cradle® strategy tailored for your company and create guidelines for implementing these measures throughout the company. Using the consulting approach of Inventory, Assessment, and Optimization, MBDC will first inventory and assess company’s use of healthy materials, systems for keeping materials in closed loops, facility energy use, facility water consumption, and social responsibility. Once this information is collected and evaluated, MBDC will provide a strategic plan to apply Cradle to Cradle® principles in each of these areas and outline goals, benchmarks, and recommendations in order for the company to work towards being 100% good.

Cradle to Cradle® Communications

An important component of integrating the Cradle to Cradle® framework within an organization is establishing a common vision at all levels and within all relevant functional areas. MBDC can educate project teams, help to establish a collaborative process to explore options, and define effective strategies to achieve the organization’s sustainability objectives.

MBDC can facilitate internal discussions and strategy sessions, assist in developing internal and external sustainability vision statements, map alternative action plans, relate stakeholder perspective, and integrate Cradle to Cradle® principles into organizational decision-making and success metrics. We are ready to contribute our knowledge and skills to your organizational change efforts for sustainability.

MBDC can also help develop messaging campaigns and communication materials that express the positive, hopeful mindset of the Cradle to Cradle® philosophy and articulate the benefits of the strategies and achievements. We will provide trainings to staff, supply chain partners, and stakeholders to facilitate internal communications and adoption of Cradle to Cradle® strategies.
