The C2C Network proudly presents 'A Journey from Cradle to Cradle. C2CN Initiatives Guide'. The guide (aka the good practice handbook) can best be seen as a catalogue of C2C related practices that are being planned and/ or happening in Europe. The cases in this initiatives guide come from stakeholders who understand that we need to go beyond eco-efficiency and have departed on their journey towards eco-effectiveness. The good practices presented in this book do not only describe C2C certified products or services. They are not pure examples, neither are they the very best or ultimate examples of C2C applications. The good examples in this handbook are first and foremost examples of practical efforts, of practices aiming at real live implementation of C2C inspired thinking. Enjoy and let them inspire you as well.
