Description

MBDC is the creator of Cradle to Cradle® and the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program. We are the world's foremost advisors in material health, product design and the Cradle to Cradle Design Framework.

1995: William McDonough (architect) and Dr. Michael Braungart (chemist) establish McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC, LLC.)

2002: McDonough and Braungart publish Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things, now recognized as one of the most important environmental manifestos of our time, which includes a collection of stories from the work done at MBDC.

2005: MBDC creates the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program to acknowledge high levels of sustainability achieved by its clients, and to inspire others to optimize their products and “rethink the way they make things.”

2009: MBDC gifts the certification program to the public with the creation of the non-profit Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, which now serves as an independent third-party verifier and administrator of the certificates.

Today: MBDC is the leading assessor for the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Products Program, working with global companies to bring their products into the forefront of the Cradle to Cradle® and Circular Economy movements.
