The Circular Passport Library
Nearly 10,000 passports that describe the environmental performance of healthy and circular products
It is impossible to measure the ecological impact of a building without knowing precisely its components!
The Upcyclea bookstore aims to facilitate the eco-design of circular buildings by providing free access to thousands of Circular Passports®.
These passports are declared and managed by their manufacturers, and describe the composition, the non-toxicity, the recycled/biobased part, the next lives, the LCA, the labels, … of their products
Thanks to its advanced search engine, choosing the best product becomes easy!
The Upcyclea library is referenced by the Union Sociale pour l’Habitat, is Cradle to Cradle® compatible, and contains all the ESFs and PEPs of the Iniès database
Data qualified and rated by our experts
How are the products rated?
Passports are published free of charge, but data consistency is checked by Upcyclea experts before publication
If they wish, manufacturers can request a rating of their passports, based on evidence they file in a private area
If the proof comes from a third party and meets the requirements, the passport receives one or more colored pictograms, depending on the criteria. If the proof is valid but self-declared, the pictogram is grayed out
If the product is Cradle to Cradle® certified, the certification level (basic, bronze, silver, gold or platinum) is displayed

The information contained in the Circular Passport® is used by the myUpcyclea® system to calculate the Circular Signature® of a building
The Circular Signature® measures the CO2 footprint, the level of health, the degree of circularity and the share of reused, recycled and biobased materials of a building or a real estate portfolio, based on the products that constitute it
It also calculates the economic residual value of a building, based on the income recoverable from the sale of used products or materials
As such, the Circular Passport® is the cornerstone of the circular economy
