The importance of sustainability in construction has grown enormously. Although the term is often associated with ecological aspects, the principle of sustainable building encompasses much more. In addition to climate and environmental considerations, it also takes into account the health and well-being of building users. It also looks at the economic efficiency over the entire life cycle of a building or district.
As Europe's largest network for sustainable building, the DGNB offers interested parties a wide range of different services to deal with the topic and build up the corresponding knowledge. These include numerous publications, training courses and other events. In the participatory association, everyone can contribute their own expertise and actively help shape the transformation. In addition, sustainability can be practically implemented in one's own project by accompanying a construction project with DGNB Certification.
