Assessment service now also available for DGNB interiors and EU taxonomy

October 12, 2022

In addition to the taxonomy check for building products, the assessment service for DGNB interiors has also been available on Building Material Scout since this year. In the building assessment area, manufacturers can use it to assess the building products in the database according to the requirements of the DGNB, DGNB Indoor, LEED, BREEAM, Well, BNB certification systems and the specifications of the EU taxonomy/ESG and users can filter the building products accordingly.

The DGNB certificate for interiors is awarded to spaces that actively promote the health, ergonomics, well-being and performance of users through the way they are designed. The conscious use of financial resources, the careful use of resources and the use of low-emission products are also rewarded. The DGNB system for interiors is to be understood as a guide to environmentally friendly, health-conscious and more economical interior fittings.

The Building Material Scout makes it easier for you to find suitable building products and thus supports you in the successful certification of your building project. Criteria from the areas of ecological quality, economic quality, socio-cultural and functional quality, technical quality and process quality are relevant for the DGNB Interiors certificate. The Building Material Scout focuses on ecological quality.
