DGNB criteria "Indoor air quality"


Our aim is to ensure that indoor air is of sufficient quality not to adversely affect users' health and well-being.


Nowadays humans spend up to 90 percent of their time in closed rooms. The indoor air quality therefore plays a significant role concerning performance and health. Ensuring high air quality in rooms by using low-emission products and providing an adequate air exchange rate increases users' well-being, productivity and satisfaction.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Indoor air quality – Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

  2. Indoor air quality – Ventilation rate
