KALDEWEI is a member of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) which takes a useful life of 50 years as the basis for its building certification. Based on the DGNB’s innovative lifecycle analysis, KALDEWEI products score high, not least because of their 30-year warranty.
At international level, KALDEWEI is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council which developed the widely recognised LEED Standard (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for eco-friendly and climate-neutral building. This quality checkmark that is being demanded by more and more investors and builders counts Environmental Production Declarations such as those presented by KALDEWEI as a component of green building certification. KALDEWEI is further a member of the Singapore Green Building Council.
As a member of the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) we support its aims and the promotion of sustainable building in particular. In this area the IBU runs a Type III Environmental Declaration Programme based on the ISO 14025 and EN 15804 standards. By producing Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and publishing them in the IBU’s Declaration Programme, we disclose all relevant ecological information about our products.
KALDEWEI is one of the first 17 “Kennedys” in the Madaster ecosystem. Madaster is the global cadastre for materials, buildings and infrastructures and enables the planning and use of buildings to be recorded as raw material data banks. This makes KALDEWEI one of the pioneers in establishing the circular economy in the construction and real estate industry.
