Johannes Kreissig, Managing Director of DGNB made the welcomed announcement at the official kick-off event of the CSC in Berlin, Germany, co-hosted by the German Ready-Mixed Association (BTB) and DGNB.

The decision was made after a thorough evaluation of the CSC standard against the DGNB’s own criteria for this kind of certification. The formal recognition by DGNB underlines once again the credibility of the CSC certification and allows certified plants to offer additional tangible value to their clients. The recognition is for the period of one year in which further alignment of the DGNB requirements and CSC criteria will take place.

This is an important milestone for the CSC, which shows the increasing importance of responsible sourcing of construction materials.
