Certification cradle to cradle - silver

In 2010, just two years after the start of Desso's new Cradle to Cradle® strategy, we received Cradle to Cradle® Silver Certification for DESSO EcoBase®, a new carpet tile backing. DESSO EcoBase®' backing was checked against tough environmental and human health criteria with up to 97% of the materials classified as positively defined. Positively defined  means that all the ingredients were assessed as either Green (optimal) or Yellow (tolerable) according to the Cradle to Cradle® assessment criteria. The polyolefin based layer of the DESSO EcoBase® backing is 100% safely recyclable in our own production process.
