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
  • Product Circularity
  • Clean Air & Climate Protection
  • Water & Soil 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.

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.
