The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is dedicated to powering the circular economy through products and systems that have a positive impact on people and planet. Through the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Products Program, the Institute sets the global, science-based standard for materials and products that are safe, circular and responsibly made.
Cradle to Cradle Certified is used by future-focused designers, architects, manufacturers, developers and asset owners to assess, optimise and verify materials and products across five comprehensive categories of sustainability performance: material health, product circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship, and social fairness.
The Institute also powers the global shift to a circular economy through partnerships and collaborative initiatives that equip businesses, governments, investors and other stakeholders with the strategic frameworks and technical knowledge they need to transform the way building products are designed and made.

About BEAM Plus
BEAM Plus is tailor-made for the high-rise, high density built environment of sub-tropical climate in Hong Kong, which embraces a range of good practices in planning, design, construction, management, operation and maintenance of building, and is aligned with local regulations, standards and codes of practice.
Appreciated by the Hong Kong Government and developers, BEAM assessment and certification provide building users with a single performance label that demonstrate the overall quality of a building. A qualified BEAM green building should be aimed at sustainability, providing a safer, healthier, more comfortable, more functional and more efficient living or working environment.
Being one of the most widely used voluntary green building labelling schemes, BEAM Plus, covering the series of BEAM Plus New Buildings, BEAM Plus Existing Buildings and BEAM Plus Interiors, caters to the diverse needs of our stakeholders.
