The Portuguese Bi-Silque creates communication solutions that are specially designed for schools and offices. Two of their Bi-Office brand presentation boards have been awarded the Silver Cradle to Cradle certificate, and one has been awarded the Bronze certificate. With this product standard, the company demonstrates that the Earth-It products are in line with the spirit of the circular economy. SGS Search Consultancy guided the international organisation in achieving the three certificates.
‘Demonstrating the sustainability of our products is very important to us, especially on the international market we operate in. Our retailers abroad greatly value certified products. We wanted to aim high right off the bat. After all, we already have a number of environmental certifications. We have managed to achieve Bronze and Silver, but we want to do even better.’
- In the space of six months, three Bi-Office brand products in the Earth-It line have been certified.
- The cork board and the ceramic board have been awarded the Silver certificate. The Dry Erase board was awarded the Bronze certificate.
- For Bi-Silque, product certification is a starting point for further improvement, and to certify even more products. They will also be working on new products that are designed with the Cradle to Cradle principles in mind from the get-go.
