It was integrated into Grupo Construcía in 2012, and since 2013 it has been an accredited organisation for the evaluation of products through the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Products Program.

Its activity in the industrial sector is represented by projects ranging from consulting for the development of circular products for Fluidra, to the management of supply chains, materials intelligence and product assessment with C2C Certified for companies such as Interface Floors, Industrias Titan and Finsa; and within the textile and fashion sector, G-Star Raw, C&A, Stella McCartney or Kontoor Lee, among others.
