Cradle to Cradle Zukunft Congress Sustainability Manufactum

The Cradle to Cradle Congress is the world’s largest platform for Cradle to Cradle – every year the C2C community meets decision-makers from economy, science, politics and society. Forums, speeches and expert discussions provide space for exchange and networking.

Our actors contribute to the development of alternative approaches and therefore enhance the idea of a positive footprint. As part of the Congress some companies present their products and illustrate the possibilities within the scope of C2C and their practical implementation.
