For over 20 years MBDC has been advocating for goods and services to be manufactured, used and reused in a “circular economy” rather than the current linear “Take-Make-Dispose” system.
Cradle to Cradle® design is based on safe cycling of goods and services in either the technosphere (technical cycle) or biosphere (biological cycle) as valuable nutrients. In addition, Cradle to Cradle® design integrates clean water, clean energy and social fairness considerations.
MBDC provides expert technical services for product and material assessments including human and environmental health considerations.
MBDC senior staff are available as keynote presenters for corporate events, national and international conferences.
MBDC provides practical workshops and presentations on the business value of Cradle to Cradle® design for the circular economy.
MBDC created the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM product certification program now independently managed by the not-for-profit Cradle to Cradle® Products Innovation Institute based in San Francisco, California and Amsterdam, Netherlands.
