DGNB Certified Buildings

DGNB

DGNB assesses buildings and urban districts based on their commitment to sustainability. Going beyond the three-pillar model of environment, social and governance, the system covers all aspects of sustainable development, measuring over 50 criteria that span environment, socio-culture/function, technology, processes and site. The system gives equal weight to economic and ecological criteria. Assessments are always based on the entire lifecycle of the building, with primary focus on the well-being of the building’s end user. DGNB grants certification based on the overall performance of a building. Depending on the degree to which DGNB performance requirements are met, the council awards a bronze, silver, gold or platinum certificate. Buildings are eligible for pre-certification in the planning phase.
