‘C2C-Inspired Building’ registration of buildings inspired by the Cradle to Cradle philosophy

Initiation of the process

Contact Upcyclea to identify the steps and costs associated with the “C2C-Inspired Building” registration process, then sign the confidentiality agreements. Once the mission is validated, register with the HUI (Hamburg Environmental Institute) and pay the registration fee.


Preparation of the eligibility dossier

Upcyclea produces the eligibility dossier by listing the “C2C-Inspired Elements” and the “C2C Delights” which represent respectively the material functions with positive impacts (e.g. air or water purification, “material bank” construction principle, C2C products) and the immaterial functions with positive impacts (e.g. aesthetics, luminosity, bio-waste management).


Analysis of the eligibility dossier

Upcyclea submits the dossier to the HUI, which decides on its eligibility, possibly after adjustments made by Upcyclea with the developer.


Audit by the HUI

Upcyclea supervises the construction of the building to ensure that the elements of the eligibility dossier remain valid. After delivery, the HUI, assisted by Upcyclea, audits the building to verify its compliance with the eligibility dossier.

If the audit is successful, the HUI will declare the building “C2C-Inspired”, the owner will receive a diploma and the building will be published on the website.

There is a great diversity of buildings in the world, so it is unfair to rank them against each other. Instead of ranking them, our goal is to accelerate the number of actively beneficial structures by celebrating outstanding C2C-inspired elements. This is the goal of the C2C-Inspired buildings registry and its registration process.

co-inventor of Cradle to Cradle.
