DUBOkeur

DUBOkeur logo

In 2004 NIBE developed a quality label to compare the environmental friendliness of multiple building products. The DUBOkeur® label is meant to certify the best choices of a product in the fields of environmental and health.

In order to do this, the environmental impact of a product in relationship to other products is tested through NIBE’s Twin-model. The most eco-friendly product is classified in environmental class 1a, the environmental reference. The other product’s class is related to reference, with class 7 as the biggest polluters. In principle the products in the classes 1 and 2 are considered for a DUBOkeur®.
