First cradle-to-cradle certificate in Europe for Ahrend 500 table system

Wednesday 16 June 2010

Ahrend has become the first European office furniture producer to get a Silver cradle-to-cradle certificate. The international furnisher has been a leader in the fields of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and the integration of environmental policy in its corporate objectives since the 1990s.
Ahrend announced in 2008 that it was going to structure its business activities in line with the cradle-to-cradle (C2C) principles developed by German chemist Michael Braungart and American architect William McDonough.

The C2C philosophy rests on three basic ideas. The first and best known is ‘Waste equals Food.’ This applies not only in the biosphere (when for example a discarded apple core is turned into compost) but also in the world of industry, where materials or parts should always be reused or recycled wherever possible. The second principle is the use of sustainable energy, and the third is the sensible use of raw materials and natural resources such as water.
