The WorldGBC brings together associations from all continents. They all agree on the goal of securing the future through a responsible way of dealing with and using resources. The WorldGBC sets standards of excellence for sustainable building worldwide. It promotes effective communication measures and cooperation between councils, countries and sector leaders, and supports the various certification systems.
As part of its membership the DGNB has been committed from the beginning to the support of new councils and is today - with Dr. Christine Lemaitre, Chief Executive Officer of the DGNB - a member on the Board of Directors of the WorldGBC.
