What does it mean if a building is DGNB certified?

The DGNB Certification System offers a wide range of benefits to its users, building owners and investors, planners, architects and consultants. A high quality of life and wellbeing is a central tenet in the DGNB System, as is the lifecycle of a building and its operational costs.

DGNB’s strong methodology has real benefits for investors. Having your building DGNB certified has shown to improve a property’s value, reduce building vacancies and help secure loans.
