“10 or 15 years ago, it was hard to obtain adequate information about the construction products. Many of the qualities which buildings should have and which are a prerequisite for sustainable buildings are defined in the detailed design. It is only when products are combined to make components that important qualities such as energy efficiency  etc become evident ”, said Prof. Alexander Rudolphi, President at German Sustainable Building Council.

“The DGNB Navigator is an unique online platform which makes construction products totally transparent. What makes sustainable construction so complex is the fact that simply adding up individual sustainable products doesn’t automatically result in a sustainable building. It always depend on specifying the right product, in the right quantity, in the right place and for the right use” said Dr Christine Lemaitre, Chief Executive Officer at German Sustainable Building Council.

From DGNB navigator you have easy access for construction products and can download products datasheets.
