The architect on our team is considering specifying a product ( for example, rainscreen products by Centria,) that touts MBDC Cradle to Cradle Certification garnering 1 point for an Innovation in Design Process (ID) credit, on the manufacturer's website. I seem to remember some announcement when this sort of thing was happening with the first 'cradle to cradle 'certified products a few years back, but can't seem to find any official USGBC, or now, GBCI, document that confirms that mere specification of a 'Cradle to Cradle Certified product' garners one point for an ID credit in LEED 2009. Can you clarify if this kind of assertion for any C2C certified product has any merit for LEED 2009, and if so, where is this information documented? Thanks for your help.
