Cradle to Cradle Material Health Certification

Cradle to Cradle logo

The Cradle to Cradle Institute works with manufacturers like TK Elevator and third-party toxicology organizations to examine the ingredients of products and offer a Material Health Certification for those who meet the standard. Currently TK Elevator has five products that have received this Material Health Certificates including enviromax®, our high performing vegetable-based hydraulic fluid and four standard cab designs offering hundreds of combined interiors options.

Health Product Declaration (HPD)

HPD-C logo

Health Product Declaration (HPDs) provide a full disclosure of the potential chemicals of concern in products by comparing product ingredients to a wide variety of “hazard” lists published by government authorities and scientific associations. TK Elevator currently has HPDs on our standard line of elevator cabs. Contact a local sales representative for more information.


Declare logo

TK Elevator voluntarily disclosed all the endura MRL cab’s ingredients in order to meet the qualifications of a Declare label and to promote product transparency. The Declare label is awarded by the Living Building Challenge™, globally considered the most stringent green rating system.

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD)

EPD logo

The intent of the EPD is to encourage the use of products and materials with publicly available, critically reviewed life-cycle assessments conforming to ISO 14044 that have at least cradle-to-gate scope. TK Elevator published the first Lift EPD that follows the Product Category Rules of the International EPD® System for endura MRL and now three more EPDs are published for the evolution, synergy and momentum elevators.
