Certify sustainable stations with the DGNB

The scheme for stations applies to the DGNB System for Buildings In Use and enables certification of areas that are within the sphere of influence of companies offering transportation services. This includes platforms, kiosks and shops directly related to the station.

Nine criteria apply to stations in operation, which can be assigned to the topics of holistic sustainability, but also differ from the criteria of other certifications according to the DGNB System for Buildings In Use:

  • Strategy and communication
  • Station management
  • Resource efficiency
  • Procurement
  • Value preservation and operating costs
  • User satisfaction
  • Socio-cultural services and accessibility
  • Safety
  • Mobility offers

  • Barrier-free facility
  • Resource-efficient use of materials
  • High level of safety
  • Contribution to the promotion of environmental compatibility
  • Avoidance of substances that are harmful to the environment and health
  • Implementation of a continuous improvement process

The certificate is aimed at companies offering transportation services and all those who operate stations.

  • Reduction of environmental impact
  • Cost saving in operation
  • Increase user satisfaction
  • Management of the station portfolio
  • Comparability
  • Direct derivation of relevant measures

Currently, the scheme is in the pilot phase.

The scheme is based on the DGNB System for Buildings In Use. The differing criteria must be taken into account.

Status: Since February 2021, projects can be registered for the pilot phase. Please contact us if you are interested.

Conditions for participation: Transport companies with stations that have been in operation for at least one year (based on the date of project registration) may participate in the pilot phase. All DGNB ESG-Managers may submit projects. DGNB Consultants may participate in the pilot phase if they submit a project and participate in all workshops after consultation with the DGNB.

Reduced certification fees are granted during the pilot phase.
