DGNB criteria "Local environmental impact" (ENV1.2)

Objective

Our objective is to reduce, avoid or substitute all dangerous or damaging materials, (construction) products or preparations that can adversely affect or cause short, medium or long-term damage to people, flora and fauna.

Benefits

The use of particularly environmentally friendly materials not only makes an important contribution to improving indoor air quality, but also helps limit the contamination risk of a building with regard to pollutants. Only a building elements catalogue, that is complete in terms of the environmental qualities of materials, can provide building owners with an extensive information about construction products used in various parts of the building. This information plays decisive importance for the quality assurance in the building construction, for clarifying deficiencies and finding appropriate ways for eliminating them, simultaneously optimising the costs of maintenance. This provides an important contribution to the value stability of a building.
