Interpretation

Yes, products that have received a full C2C certification may use the score for the material health category to document Option 2 of the Material Ingredients credit. The value for the material health score follows the same levels as a full product certification (C2C v2 Gold valued at 100%, platinum at 150%; C2C v3 Silver – 100%, Gold and Platinum - 150%).
