DGNB organising green action week with Troldtekt as partner

8:e sep. 2022

This year, international umbrella organisations for sustainable building are again drawing attention to the need for a green transition. This is happening as part of the World Green Building Week in September. In Germany, DGNB is coordinating a digital action week – and as a partner, Troldtekt is giving a presentation.

The construction industry accounts for approx. one third of global CO2 emissions and resource consumption. Therefore, the sector also plays a major role in the green transition. Under the motto ‘Building for everyone’, the DGNB German Sustainable Building Council is issuing an invitation to participate in free online presentations and debates during the German version of the global World Green Building Week.

The action week is taking place on 12-16 September 2022. Each day, presentations will be given on different themes of relevance to sustainable building. During the week, you can hear about everything from choosing sustainable building materials to paving the way towards climate-positive cities. DGNB will also be presenting a number of the organisation’s members as well as the opportunities it offers.

Presentation at the beginning of the week

As a DGNB partner, Troldtekt will be present at the World Green Building Week. Our Head of Sustainability and Communications, Tina Snedker Kristensen, is giving an online presentation about Troldtekt’s strategic work with the circular economy and the new Troldtekt acoustic panels based on FUTURECEM, which absorb more CO2 than they emit during production. The presentation is scheduled for Monday, 12 September at 14:00.

Troldtekt contributes positively to DGNB

The DGNB German Sustainable Building Council is responsible for and develops the German certification of sustainable buildings. The certification highlights the importance of taking a holistic approach to sustainability based on, for example, ecological, economic and sociocultural criteria.

The same holistic approach characterises the Cradle to Cradle design concept, which for a decade has been the focal point of Troldtekt’s business strategy. Troldtekt acoustic solutions contribute positively to criteria that collectively account for about half of a building’s possible DGNB certification points.
