Proud of our projects and partners

As an internationally active scientific research and consultancy institute we work with companies as well as stakeholders from industry, science and government to implement Cradle to Cradle materials management throughout the supply chain.

Our core competences include the evaluation of materials, products and processes, and their optimization and development. In this way, we are able to support our partner companies in their search for eco-effective innovations.

Our work with the Cradle to Cradle design concept is leading the field. For example, in inspiring the Circular Economy trend, which includes elements of Cradle to Cradle. We have been commissioned by regional and national governments, as well as international institutions, to carry out studies on circular models inspired by Cradle to Cradle.


Case Studies

To strengthen the public communication of the Cradle to Cradle design concept, EPEA has decided to present successful C2C project references with a newly designed Case Study. The Case Study, for which we work together closely with our clients, displays the core aspects of the project and thereby gives customers a quick overview of achieved benefits due to the work with EPEA and the Cradle to Cradle concept.
