DGNB accepts CSC certificates

DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) managing director Johannes Kreissig announced on april 19th 2018 that the CSC certificates of Silver and Gold level will be recognized in the responsible sourcing credit of the DGNB 2018 version for sustainable construction.


The decision was made after a thorough evaluation of the CSC standard against the DGNB’s own criteria for this kind of certification. The announcement was made at the official kick-off event of the CSC in Germany, co-hosted by BTB (German Ready-Mixed Association) and DGNB.The formal recognition by DGNB underlines once again the credibility of the CSC certification and allows certified plants to offer additional tangible value to their clients. The recognition is for the period of one year in which further alignment of the DGNB requirements and CSC criteria will take place. Johannes Kreissig explained: “Liaising the new 2018 DGNB System with responsible sourcing certificates for construction material - such as one of the first, the CSC System for concrete - is just the consequent next step of an integrated and continuous improvement towards sustainable buildings.”
