The most ambitious and actionable standard yet for designing and making products today that enable a healthy, equitable, and sustainable tomorrow
Dansk Wilton is among the first companies to certify our carpet solutions according to the new and more ambitious version 4.0 of the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Product Standard – the most ambitious and actionable standard yet for designing and making products today that enable a healthy, equitable, and sustainable tomorrow.

Cradle to Cradle Certified Version 4.0 reflects significant advancements in the knowledge and understanding of what it takes to make products with a positive impact on people and planet today, and tomorrow.

Version 4.0 of Cradle to Cradle Certified builds on the legacy of previous versions of the standard by better equipping brands, retailers, designers and manufacturers with guidance and best practices for choosing safer materials, driving meaningful innovation, and creating products, systems and business models that have a positive impact on humans and the environment today, and in the future.

Cradle to Cradle Certified Version 4.0 features new and enhanced requirements in all performance categories, including:

  • New frameworks for Product Circularity and Social Fairness that define global best practices
  • More rigorous requirements in Clean Air & Climate Protection to promote urgent action to address climate change
  • Expanded requirements in Water & Soil Stewardship to ensure clean water and healthy soils are available to people and all other organisms
  • Improved alignment of Material Health requirements with leading chemical regulations and other standards, including a new Restricted Substances List.

We believe that the documentation requirements and a science-based approach, rather than mere claims, is increasingly crucial for effective engagement in sustainability initiatives.

How we design and make products today shapes the world we will inhabit tomorrow
