Going circular with Cradle to Cradle Certified™ light poles
A Cradle to Cradle Certified™ (C2C) light pole helps you reach your sustainability goals. The products are made from environmentally friendly and healthy materials and are designed for recycling in a technical circle. We make them for you.
Moving forward to a circular economy is critical for the industrial revolution that is already underway. Your role in this movement begins when you say yes to C2C light poles.
The C2C Certified™ program covers five quality categories:
- Material health
- Material reutilization
- Renewable energy and carbon management
- Water stewardship
- Social fairness
Products receive an achievement level in each category — there are five levels, from basic to platinum — with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark.
Fully recyclable, renewable energy, strict water use guidelines
With Hydro, you receive a guarantee that the light poles are 100 percent recyclable, made with renewable energy, in compliance with strict water use guidelines, and that they are manufactured in an environment where social responsibility is the standard.
In 2011, we became the first producer in the world to receive a C2C Silver certificate for our light poles. The products are designed to reduce waste. Hydro also established a system in which we take the light poles back for recycling at the end of their life-cycle. By incorporating circularity, we use less raw materials in the supply chain.
