DGNB criteria "Immissions control"


Our objective is to minimise disruption to the immediate surroundings of the building due to sound and light emissions. In addition, we wish to prevent negative impacts on people and nature due to noise and light from buildings.


Measures to prevent/reduce sound emissions and adverse light conditions have a positive impact on the health and well-being of users and the surrounding environment. This increases the productivity of building users and reduces absenteeism. Preventing light pollution supports the stability of ecosystems and can reduce the subsequent social costs incurred as a result of damage.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Noise immissions – immissions guide values

  2. Light pollution
