DGNB criteria "Indoor air quality" (SOC1.2)

Objective

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

Benefits

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.
