DGNB criteria "Sustainable resource extraction" (ENV1.3)

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 materials extraction and processing methods that comply with recognised environmental and social standards.

Benefits

Improved transparency helps to rise awareness regarding the sustainable resource extraction among all people involved in the value chain. This leads to the further expansion and more widely dissemination of experience gained about the sustainable and socio-ecologically acceptable raw material extractionsand by this meanscounteract to environmental and social wrongs.
