As the first region in the world, Venlo has embraced the principles of Cradle to Cradle. Cradle to Cradle (C2C) is a sustainability concept, based on the re-use of materials. The goal is to make products completely suitable for upcycling and for waste to serve as usable materials.
The most important example (and stimulant) of that is the municipal office of Venlo. The municipality of Venlo decided to build this office in line with C2C starting points. The office combines a comfortable and healthy work environment with sustainable innovations. The C2C ambition translates into the dream to create a building that serves as a bank of materials that generates energy, purifies water and improves air quality. In short: a building that adds value. A tangible example of a sustainable world becoming reality.
The municipality of Venlo organises a Cradle to Cradle year from October 2016 to October 2017. The kick-off for this Cradle to Cradle year took place on 14 October 2016, with the opening of the municipal office of Venlo. During the entire C2C year, various activities and events will be held. The highlight of the year is a conference spanning three days.
