At Sustenuto, we keep evolving to offer businesses the best support in their sustainability journey. The full integration of our subsidiary, C2C Platform, is the latest step in the continuous growth of our company.
C2C Platform is an experienced assessment body for Cradle to Cradle Certified® certifications. Our colleagues have ample experience in guiding companies through the exhaustive certification process.
By integrating C2C Platform into its service portfolio, Sustenuto responds to two evolutions: the ongoing regulatory developments at EU level and the updated requirements imposed by Version 4.0 of the C2C Certified® Product Standard.
The Green Transition
The EU is leading the way on how compliance is evolving globally. Think of its ambitious Green Deal and subsequent regulatory initiatives, such as the:
- Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)
- Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)
- Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CS3D)
- European Climate Law
- EU Taxonomy
- EU Green Claims Directive
These initiatives form an opportunity for companies to better coordinate their sustainability efforts. At the same time, they require more integrated competencies at both organisational and product level.
Rigorous requirements in Version 4.0
The Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard is a globally recognised standard for safe, circular, and responsibly made products. It is developed and owned by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
Version 4.0 of the standard was launched in July 2021 and requires higher standards for, among other things, due diligence and climate action.
This new version requires strategic embedding in an organisation’s corporate approach. The C2C Certified certification thus provides a solid response to the obligations imposed by the EU on product level.
Our integrated solutions
In response to these developments, we have made C2C Platform’s services an integral part of ours. As of 1st June 2023, companies can turn to Sustenuto for guidance on Cradle to Cradle Certified under the second pillar of our portfolio, “Shaping Sustainable Products”.
Through this integration, Sustenuto is providing its customers with a comprehensive approach to sustainability that incorporates the latest regulatory developments and certification standards.
The combination of our C2C Certified expertise and deep understanding of sustainability allows us to embed circular principles into both business models and product design processes.
Thanks to the integration, Sustenuto is better positioned to develop sustainable organisations, products, and brands. A significant step in the company’s growth to guide companies towards more sustainable business practices.
