C2C BIZZ – Guide to Cradle to Cradle® (C2C) Inspired Business Sites

The Guide is a whitepaper which provides systematic and practical guidance on how to implement C2C on business sites. As each site development has its unique framework conditions, the Guide has a flexible structure that can be used independently, according to specific needs. The Guide also explains the tools in detail, indicates how and when they can be used, and includes a set of best practices and showcases.

Charter Table of Recommendations

A charter sets the framework for the planning, realization and operation of a C2C business site on the political and administrative level. It is a kind of ‘letter of understanding’ for the responsible bodies on these levels. The tool exemplifies how C2C-ideas deriving from a general political decision-process, can be integrated into a policy strategy. It explains and gives suggestions how to research suitable C2C-objectives and how to combine them with public planning.

Development Framework & Memorandum of Understanding

The Development Framework (DF) provides a scheme (model) to articulate the C2C related goals in terms of a specific site development. It is one of the leading documents used to reach agreement with several stakeholders and investors. The DF can be combined with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as an additional tool. This latter is a template for an agreement between the site owner, respective promoter or operator and the tenants who want to settle in the area.

Operational Framework

The Operational Framework (OF) is built on the Development Framework (DF). Whereas the DF sets out the general criteria and goals to consider by developing the business site in terms of (public) infrastructure, building facilities and operating businesses, the OF formulates substantial and measurable parameters which have to be fulfilled by the actors on the site.

Valuation tool

A valuation tool, to be used in planning and implementing C2C projects, is required to address the following three financial aspects, as far as possible:

  • Availability and infusion of funds.
  • Financial feasibility and viability of C2C in business parks.
  • Proper allocation of available funds.

It aims to be an instrument to provide a decision-making framework for the selection of optimal funding sources and types and for building a business case.

Inventory

This tool is a compilation of questionnaires looking for detailed information on the background of a (future) business site and its surroundings. The inventory enables the planner of a C2C inspired business site to find out in a systematic way what the essential initial conditions of his project are. But it also shows the possibilities for the application of C2C.
