modulyss achieves Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold level
We’re very excited to announce that 9 of our modulyss collections are Cradle to Cradle certified™ Gold! Continuing our focus on creating safe and sustainable carpet tiles, this certification marks our transitioning towards circularity and aims to make a lasting positive change for the industry.
“At modulyss we aim to contribute to a circular economy by offering our customers sustainable carpet tile solutions. We consider our Cradle to Cradle certification as a crucial milestone in this endeavour,” says Stefan Claeys, Managing Director at modulyss.
Cradle to Cradle certified™ is a globally recognised independent standard for products with a positive impact on people and planet developed and issued by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. In order to become Cradle to Cradle certified™, the modulyss products had to undergo an extensive assessment of environmental and social criteria across five categories:
- material health
- material reutilization
- renewable energy and carbon management
- water stewardship
- social fairness.
In the category ‘material health’, we achieved a Platinum score (the highest possible), underlining the products’ exceptional safety to humans and the environment.
The modulyss Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold carpet tiles are made with 100% regenerated solution dyed PA6 yarn (ECONYL®) and feature a new backing with circularity in mind. This PVC and bitumen free backing, called ecoBack, consists of minimum 75% recycled content and can be disassembled and recycled at the end of the carpet’s lifetime. In addition, all Cradle to Cradle Certified™ products are CO2 neutral thanks to the CO2RE initiative, which offsets any remaining greenhouse gas emissions by supporting climate projects.
