Abstract

Various guidelines for Cradle to Cradle in the built environment were established since 1992. However, it’s not clear how the Cradle to Cradle principles can be translated to the realization of a building. This paper contains information from literature with a focus on applying the Cradle to Cradle principles in building design and -construction. Also results of interviews with experts and directly involved stakeholders, about applying the Cradle to Cradle principles in the built environment will be provided. Specifically a number of aspects and desired results will be addressed, which seem to be essential in the realization of a building.
