Green building

With more than a third of global carbon emissions originating from building construction and operation, the potential for emission reduction in this area is substantial. This is where Geberit products and systems can play a pivotal role in obtaining building certification.

Sanitary products are some of many elements in a building as a whole and only make up part of the ecological footprint. Nevertheless, Geberit products can still help to fulfil certified building standards such as LEED, BREEAM and DGNB.

Geberit’s contribution to certification

Certificates for sustainable construction are now commonplace worldwide, providing transparency and orientation with regard to the ecological assessment of buildings. The most widespread global labels are LEED, BREEAM and DGNB.

Geberit has established itself as a reliable partner with its extensive range of innovative sanitary solutions. Geberit’s water efficiency solutions in particular can help to obtain a certificate for a building.

Environmental product declarations

Environmental product declarations (EPDs) create transparency and allow products to be compared in terms of their environmental impact. They serve as a crucial source of information for building owners, investors, business partners and other decision-makers. EPDs are playing an increasingly important role when it comes to building certification, as building products with an EPD facilitate the ecological assessment of a building. Some 34% of Geberit’s total revenue is accounted for by products with an EPD.
