Nowadays Cradle to Cradle™ and circular economy are inseparably connected with one another. But what is this mean? And what does this mean for you as a partner? We would like to inform and assist you further.
What is Cradle to Cradle™?
Cradle to Cradle Certified™ is the ultimate form of sustainability and stands for waste is food. This means that the raw materials you use for production can be fully recycled, without losing any value.
FB+ Engineered Flooring is assessed on five criteria, namely:
1. Material Health
2. Material Reutilization
3. Renewable Energy & Carbon Management
4. Water Stewardship
5. Social Fairness
FB Hout is well reviewed on all the criteria and is one of the few wooden flooring manufacturers in the world that can carry the Cradle to Cradle™ certificate.
What is a circular economy?
There is a clear connection between Cradle to Cradle™ and circular economy. A circular economy is an economic system in which the value will be maintained or created through recycling products and/or raw materials to minimize the loss of raw materials. It is a system that offers many opportunities and cannot be ignored.
What’s in it for you?

The revenue model can also be used to offer associated services and maintenance work.
