The DGNB Certification System was developed by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) together with the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building, and Urban Affairs (BMVBS) to be used as a tool for the planning and evaluation of buildings in a comprehensive quality perspective. It is designed as a rating system and covers all relevant topics of sustainable construction.
Awards within this certification scheme are given in categories of bronze, silver, and gold.
Six impact areas and fields are considered during evaluation: ecology, economy, social-cultural and functional topics, techniques, processes, and location.
