Quality and future viability are the terms that translate sustainability best into construction. Since its foundation in 2007, the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB e.V.) has become one of the most important initiators and drivers of this topic in Europe. An essential part of this is the certification of sustainable buildings, interiors and districts.

At an event organised by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB e.V.) and the Hamburg Chamber of Architects, Urs Wedekind will use the German House in Vietnam as en example to show how certification can help to plan and construct a sustainable building. Another speaker will be Dr. Christine Lemaitre, Managing Director of the DGBN, who will present the most important background information on the association and the DGNB certification process.
