Building certification

Buildings account for an estimated 40% of all CO2 emissions worldwide. It goes without saying that the construction industry needs to use resources and energy responsibly. We spend up to 90% of our lives in buildings. Therefore, the quality of the construction and architecture should take into account people’s health and well-being. Which is why international certification systems like BREEAM, LEED, HQE and DGNB include health and well-being in their sustainable building criteria.

For decades, Wilkhahn has been striving to ensure its furniture makes indoor environments healthier places to be. All our product ranges are inspected and certified to the stringent Greenguard standard for better indoor air quality. Materials, surfaces, sound-absorbent screens and wall tiles also help to cut noise. Last but not least, our furniture scores top marks for functionality and handling, therefore preventing any unnecessary stress in the office. But above all, stimulating mental and physical agility lies at the heart of the products and concepts. After all, fit bodies and minds boost our immune systems.
