AGC Green Product Certification Journey

Cradle to Cradle

In 2010, AGC Glass Europe was the first European glassmaker to obtain C2C Certified® for its float glass and magnetron-coated glassand ongoing work is being done to add products to the C2C Certified® Products Standard.

Today, AGC Glass Asia also has made its mark in being the first Asia glassmaker to obtain C2C Certified® for its mirrors, Mirox MNGE, Bronze level under version 3.1 of C2C. Continuous work is done to add more products to the C2C Certified® Products Standard.

A Robust Framework That Ensures Safety, Sustainability And Reliability

Cradle to Cradle Criteria

Under the Cradle to Cradle Certified® product programme, a product is assessed based on five categories. All five categories are equally weighted, however, material health category is given more importance. In each category assessment, an achievement level will be awarded – Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum – with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark. The Cradle to Cradle Certified® product scorecard gives information on the achievement levels that AGC Glass Asia obtains in each of the five quality categories. Each C2C certification has a scorecard associated with it. This gives a detailed representation of how AGC Glass Asia performed in each quality category along with what we received as an "overall certification level."
