The DGNB Certification System, a second-generation system compared to other international certification systems, includes assessment which revolves around ecological aspects, DGNB says.
DGNB-certified buildings consume fewer resources during construction, have lower greenhouse gas emissions and largely can be recycled.
The DGNB director, Christine Lemaitre, said today in Zagreb after the agreement-signing ceremony that she was glad to see that Croatian partners opted for promoting the DGNB system.
The head of the Croatian NGO, Dean Smolar, explained that the system was adjusted to EU regulations and the Life Level(s) project which is being implemented by the Croatia Green Building Council.
To date, over 8,200 public and private buildings and districts in 27countries worldwide have acquired DGNB certificates.
