AGC Glass Europe is the first glass manufacturer to have received Cradle to Cradle certifiedTM Gold for its range of patterned glass
As of January this year, AGC Glass Europe is the first glass manufacturer to have received Cradle to Cradle certifiedTM Gold for its range of patterned glass. In this latest accomplishment of a certification process begun in 2010, AGC now has the honour of being the only manufacturer to offer such a wide portfolio of products under the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Products Program with no fewer than six product ranges now being certified.
AGC has already obtained Silver Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM for its float glass and its magnetron coated glass, and Bronze for its range of decorative products (Mirox MNGE, Lacobel, Matelac, Lacobel T and Matelac T, and Matelux), its laminated glass (Stratobel and Stratophone) and its insulating glass (Thermobel and iplus/ipasol Insulating Glazing).
The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Products Program recognises the overall sustainability of products throughout their life cycle.AGC patterned glass products (Imagin, Imagin Sandblasted, Imagin Wired and Oltreluce) have obtained Platinum standard for material health and Gold for the five other criteria taken into account in this certification.
This new accreditation is the latest step in AGC's policy of sustainable development, aimed at constantly raising the environmental performance of its products and of its production plant.
