Laws and guidelines for sustainable building construction
In addition, there are a large number of regulations to be observed at international, European and national level when constructing a building.
Examples are the Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz), EU taxonomy or the regulation on the energy efficiency requirement. For the planning of public contracts, the guidelines for sustainable building construction must also be taken into account. The right choice of materials plays an important role in meeting specified targets.
