DGNB criteria "Sustainable resource extraction"

Objective

Our objective is to promote the use of products in buildings and their external installations that are transparent with regard to their environmental and social impacts throughout the value chain and utilise raw material extraction and processing methods that comply with recognised environmental and social standards.

Benefits

Improved transparency helps to raise awareness regarding the sustainable resource extraction among all people involved in the value chain. This leads to the further expansion and wider dissemination of experience gained about sustainable and socio-ecologically acceptable raw material extraction and to therefore counteract environmental and social wrongs.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Sustainably produced raw materials

  2. Secondary raw materials

Schemes

Contribution to high-priority sustainability goals
