    New DGNB ‘Climate Positive’ award for buildings that make an active contribution to climate protection

    As many studies highlight, the property industry plays a pivotal role in achieving climate protection goals. What they often fail to mention is that there are already a number of buildings that actively contribute to these goals. This was the motivation behind the Climate Positive award recently launched by the DGNB. To receive the award, the carbon emissions generated when using and operating a building must still be lower than the volume of carbon emissions the building avoids in the first place by producing and exporting energy with zero greenhouse emissions. The DGNB honoured the first eleven projects that demonstrate that this is already possible at the Expo Real trade fair in Munich.   more
