The DGNB System for districts
Living and working spaces continue to grow closer together as urbanisation increases. The development of sustainable districts is one of the key tasks of contemporary urban development. In times of climate change, scarcity of resources and social division, planners, developers, municipal and institutional builders have a special responsibility. The aim is to create sustainable, liveable districts in which people can feel comfortable without unnecessarily affecting the climate and environment.
With its certification system for sustainable districts, the DGNB has been offering a globally recognised planning and optimisation tool, which helps to implement this kind of holistic sustainability in a targeted, systematic and economic manner. It offers the right answers to our most important questions about the future of planning and construction practices.
