  • 9. ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTERS
  • 10. CRADLE TO GRAVE DESIGN PARADIGM
  • 11. ARE WE TOO MANY? “No goal is more crucial to healing the global environment than stabilizing human population.” Al Gore
  • 12. ARE WE TOO MANY?
  • 13. ARE THEY TOO MANY ?
  • 14. THE BIOMASS OF ANTS IS FOUR TIMES GREATER THAN THAT OF HUMANS
  • 15. Eco-Efficiency Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic
  • 16. CRADLE TO GRAVE : TARGET IS ZERO REDUCTION, AVOIDANCE, MINIMIZATION, PREVENTION. ECO-EFFICIENCY
  • 17. CRADLE TO CRADLE : THE GOAL IS QUALITY ECO-EFFECTIVENESS DEFINE, INCREASE, SUPPORT, OPTIMIZE ECO-EFFICIENCY
  • 18. CRADLE TO CRADLE DESIGN PARADIGM • WASTE EQUALS FOOD • USE CURRENT SOLAR INCOME • CELEBRATE DIVERSITY
  • 19. IDENTIFY THE BEST: ABC-X CATEGORIZATION OPTIMAL OPTIMIZING TOLERABLE NOT ACCEPTABLE NOT CHARACTERIZED
  • 20. PROGRESS OF QUALITY FROM CRADLE TO CRADLE WITH TIME ECO-EFFECTIVENESS WHERE CLIENTS AND SUPPLIERS REGARD THEMSELVES AS PARTNERS, AIMING FOR THE HIGHEST QUALITIES

  • 27. The BEL-AIR Bio Filter
  • 28. ECO-EFFECTIVE VS. ECO-EFFICIENT ARCHITECTURE Eco-Efficient Architecture: • Minimize energy use • Reuse Materials • Dematerialization – less materials • Recycling „The house is a machine for living“ (LeCorbusier) • Uniform design regardless of place • Facilitated by air conditioning • Short on fresh air and natural light
  • 29. BEYOND THE LIMITS OF SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE Eco-effective architecture • Rematerialization – Technical and biological cycles – Integrated with nature‘s nutrient and energy cycles • Material chemistry – Positively defined material chemistry – e.g. Climatex and BASF carpet fiber
  • 30. Buildings like trees, Cities like forests
  • 31. Adam Joseph Lewis Center for Environmental Studies I Oberlin College, OH
  • 32. ECO-EFFECTIVE ARCHITECTURE • More Impact – More habitat – More clean water – More fresh air – More pleasure – More beauty – More biological diversity – More fun • Intelligent Workplace – Responds to outdoor and indoor conditions
  • 33. Ford: River Rouge Plant in Dearborn, Michigan, USA Prior to Redesign •Soil and water contamination on worksite •Dark, dank, unpleasant Factory-Interior •US$ 48 million for Water-Management After Eco-Effective Redesign •Decontamination of soil •Natural lighting and high ceilings •US$ 35 million savings for Water Purification
  • 34. RIVER ROUGE – LIVING ROOF DESIGN

  • 41. AVR VAN GANSEWINKEL: THE NUTRIENT MANAGER “For us Cradle to Cradle is not a new invention, it is more a recognition of existing activities and re- discovering what our business is really about!” • “We embrace it and support it. In our opinion nutrients should not be wasted. We can give it a new lease of life.” Ruud Sondag CEO, AVR - Van Gansewinkel
  • 42. STATEMENT FROM THE CEO OF DESSO “With Cradle to Cradle, Desso is in it for the long haul. It’s a challenging task which will involve the creation of entirely new products and technologies. But it’s a task we’re proud to undertake, for the betterment of our products, our brand, the people and our planet.” CEO - Stef Kranendijk, Desso
  • 43. INTELLIGENT MATERIALS POOLING (IMP) – PHASE ONE Creating Strength: • Identify partners • Identify substances to eliminate
  • 44. INTELLIGENT MATERIALS POOLING (IMP) – PHASE TWO Using Strength: • Develop a collective list of intelligent materials (i.e. positive purchasing and procurement list) – I.e. eco-effective polymers and additives, alloys, building materials, etc.
  • 45. INTELLIGENT MATERIALS POOLING (IMP) – PHASE THREE Define Flows: • Define use periods for products and services • IMP uses high quality materials, becoming a virtual ‘materials bank’
