All publications issued by the DGNB are available for free, either as PDFs or in printed versions.

Our members and auditors can download publications in the protected area of our website.


Our reports look at current topics of interest and emerging issues, provide initial insights into certain topics and offer information on the areas the DGNB works in, such as the circular economy or zero carbon footprint buildings.



Allow our brochures to provide you with insights into the activities of the DGNB – the association itself, the DGNB System, individual schemes offered within our system, the DGNB Academy or perhaps the DGNB Navigator.


The certification system

The DGNB System works as a planning and optimisation tool, providing help with raising the tangible sustainability of building projects. It also fosters a shared understanding of the pertinent requirements of sustainable building methods, among all parties involved in development projects.
