Scheme overview

The DGNB System for international use

The DGNB has developed the CORE 14 system for international use. It is based on international standards and requirements and can be adapted to local requirements in different countries.
The CORE 14 scheme for new offices is available in English language. Further schemes are in the process of translation. However, auditors with German language skills can combine and adapt the full range of current German schemes with CORE 14 in order to certify other building types.

The following schemes are currently available for buildings in Germany.

  • New offices
  • Existing offices
  • Residential buildings
  • Dwellings
  • Healthcare
  • Education facilities
  • Hotels
  • Retail
  • Assembly buildings
