DGNB

What is DGNB?

The DGNB (German for the German Sustainable Building Council) is a certifying organisation specialising in holistically improving buildings and urban quarters according to sustainability and wellbeing parameters across their entire life cycle.  

Why obtain a DGNB certification?

Sustainably certified buildings tend to have lower maintenance and operating costs while preserving their value for longer.  

  • Improvements in user health and wellbeing  
  • Lower costs and optimisations in long term 
  • DGNB-certified buildings consume less during construction, emit less greenhouse gas emissions and can mostly be recycled 
  • Quality assurance for investors and building owners  
  • Economic sustainability is considered equally as environmental and social 
  • Increased rent and sales potential of the building 
  • DGNB-certified buildings have easier access to loans
