Our members come from all disciplines of the construction and real estate industry and beyond. From one-person offices to global corporations, we welcome all of them. Because everyone can contribute their individual expertise to our work, take away new impulses for their own actions, share experiences and make valuable contacts for their own company.
The DGNB is a participatory association. Everyone can get involved with us and promote for more sustainability. Even though our common denominator is sustainable building, there are many different areas of expertise and topics behind it. For example, a medium-sized communications agency that advises architecture and planning offices in rural areas can contribute to the transformation of the sector just as much as the professionals or decision makers of a large construction company.
We see ourselves as a network of forward thinkers and doers. Instead of making big speeches, we want to bring everyone along as best we can, motivate them to rethink and get them doing. We can only make sustainability the new normal if everyone pulls together - from the smallest to the largest.
„The Council's goal is to promote sustainability throughout the construction and real estate sectors and beyond, and to raise consciousness in the general public. The Council aims to present and promote ways and means of sustainable planning, design, and use of our built environment, in order to create living space that is exemplary in terms of environmental, economical, sociocultural, and functional aspects. The Council supports research, development, and teaching towards this goal and sees itself as an organization which promotes the public good."
