Nordhavn receives gold certificate for sustainability
The urban plan for Copenhagen’s Nordhavn area has been certified according to the DGNB standard and has obtained the gold certificate, the highest possible ranking. The DGNB certification, developed in Germany, is the de facto standard for certification of urban plans and buildings. The method is thorough and holistic, taking into account a large number of criteria regarding the area’s social, economic and environmental properties.
Five urban areas in Denmark were certified as a pilot project for adapting the German standards to Danish conditions, of which Nordhavn was the only one to obtain the prestigious gold certificate.
Cobe has assisted CPH City & Port Development in assessing the project according to the certification criteria.
