  • Deliverables of this C2Cnetwork are the action plans and perspective studies for the target areas Building, Industry, spatial development and governance. Therefore, it was considered there is a need for a common language about Cradle to Cradle. What do we understand with the concept, the principles and the applications. Vito and Sustenuto therefore will work a theoretical framework both at the general level as at the target area level: what does C2C mean for spatial development or how could it be applied in this context, what is it role, what not…
  • Who is doing this: Vito: Flemish institute for technological research. Research institute where about 600 researchers work in themes such as sustainable development, energy, industrial processes, … Sustenuto: Consultancy bureau specialised in Corporate social responsibility and partner of EPEA for Cradle to Cradle. Our sounding board consists. They critically assess our texts and provide guidance
  • As already mentioned a need was determined of having a common language of what is understood with the concept of Cradle to Cradle. For each of the perspective studies an introduction

    10. 10. General framework - Background
    11. 11. General framework - Background <ul><li>Growing awareness something has to change: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Last decades growing welfare but well-being? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What about next decades? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Action is needed and is also taken: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>initally defensive (cost reduction waste, compliance with law) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>collaborative (preventive approach) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>active approach (product responsibility, life cycle analysis, eco- efficiency) </li></ul></ul>Will this be enough?
    12. 12. General framework - Background <ul><li>Need for a goal – where do we want to go to and how we can achieve this? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Braungart and McDonough introduce the C2C-concept </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Broader framework: eco-effectivity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Application framework: products and processes and how to deal with materials/resources/waste </li></ul></ul></ul>
    13. 13. General framework - Cradle to Cradle concept <ul><ul><li>Eco-effectivity Eco-efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Doing the right things” “Doing the things right” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ maximise positive “minimise </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> effects” negative effects” </li></ul></ul>

    15. 15. General framework - applications <ul><li>Products, processes, buildings, business models, spatial areas,… that are inspired by the Cradle to Cradle concept and its principles </li></ul><ul><li>Only for products there is a validation tool: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>C2C™-certificate – safe, healthy and reusable materials </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The C2Cnetwork project ambition is to understand the potential role of C2C for applications in: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Industry </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Buildings </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Spatial area </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And role of governance </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Not the ambition to set up a validation tool </li></ul>

What is the practical implication for the target areas? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are success and failure factors? How can we activate them in a different context? How to make good practices transferable to other regions? </li></ul></ul>
