DGNB – acronym for the German Sustainable Building Council. A non-profit organisation based in Stuttgart, since it was founded in 2007 the DGNB has been committed to demonstrably good buildings and urban districts that are worth living in. In straightforward terms, this means building an environment around ourselves with foresight. Our overarching aim is to promote change in the building and property market, engendering an appropriate understanding of quality as a foundation for responsible and sustainable action. With around 1300 members the DGNB turned into Europe's biggest network for sustainable building.
Our aspiration is to raise public awareness of the necessity of sustainable building and, above all, to demonstrate that it is indeed achievable. Furthermore, we realize the impact and influence of the construction and real-estate.
