The administrative building in Romania achieved an outstanding compliance of 84% under the DGNB building certification system, earning the gold certificate – it is the first building in Romania to receive this up till now.
Sustainability and the environment are very important to EGGER. “We follow the basic principle of sustainability because we know that our actions today determine the quality of our living space in the future,” explains Jana Sprockhoff, Product Management Constructive. For EGGER, the logical conclusion was to have the energy-efficient and sustainable administrative building certified according to the criteria for DGNB building assessment system. This was carried out by the “Österreichische Gesellschaft für Nachhaltige Immobilienwirtschaft” (ÖGNI) (Austrian Society for Sustainable Real Estate).
ÖGNI President Phillip Kaufmann also confirmed: “EGGER shows how sustainability can be implemented when building. As president of the ÖGNI, I would like to congratulate EGGER on its enthusiasm and implementation for sustainability.” The building is one of the first pilot projects to receive gold certification under the nationally adapted DGNB system for Austria and up to now the only one in Romania.
Environmental product declarations (EPDs) confirmed by independent experts made the building certification process much easier. EPDs include the results of the environmental performance assessment, specifying essential information on the environmental impact of production and the end-of-life scenario. For the usage phase, they supply information in the form of tests and confirmations of reaction to fire, structural-physical properties such as heat insulation and acoustics, and the emission behaviour of wood-based materials.
