    MATERIAL HEALTH Basic Bronze Silver Gold Platinum

    No Banned List chemicals

    Materials defined as biological or technical nutrient

    100% "characterized" (all generic materials)

    Strategy developed to optimize x-assessed materials

    At least 75% of materials assessed by weight

    At least 95% of materials assessed by weight

    No CMR* chemicals in a form that may result in exposure

    100% of materials assessed by weight

    Formulation optimized (100% positive chemistry)

    MATERIAL REUTILIZATION

    Design to eliminate

    the concept of “waste” with

    intentional nutrient cycles to retain the full value of the nutrient

    100% recovery and

    upcycling

  • 11

    REUTILIZATION SCORE

    MATERIAL REUTILIZATION Basic Bronze Silver Gold Platinum

    Defined the appropriate cycle (TN or BN)

    Plan for product recovery and reutilization

    Material (re)utilization score ≥ 35

    Material (re)utilization score ≥ 50

    Material (re)utilization score ≥ 65

    Nutrient management strategy complete

    Material (re)utilization score of 100

    Product is actively being recovered and cycled

    RENEWABLE ENERGY & CARBON MANAGEMENT

    A future powered by renewable energy

    where manufacturers positively impact

    energy supply, ecosystem balance, and keep carbon in soil and vegetation

    100%+ renewably powered

  • 13

    CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

    RENEWABLE ENERGY & CARBON MANAGEMENT Basic Bronze Silver Gold Platinum

    Quantify purchased electricity and on-site emissions

    Renewable energy and carbon management strategy

    5% of purchased electricity is renewable or offset

    5% of direct on-site emissions are offset

    50% of purchased electricity is renewable or offset

    50% of direct on-site emissions are offset

    >100% of purchased electricity is renewable or offset

    >100% of direct on-site emissions are offset

    ≥ 5% of embodied energy from Cradle to Gate is covered by offsets or addressed + optimization strategy

    WATER STEWARDSHIP

    Treat water as precious

    resource by encouraging effective management and

    use strategies

    Water out is cleaner than the water coming in
