This report is part of the Active Roofs & Facades in Sustainable Renovation project, partially funded by Nordic Innovation through the Nordic Built program.
The report provides a brief overview and key information for renovation projects that make use of Active Facade & Roof (AFR) technologies, regarding the secondary certification systems identified for this project.
Secondary certification systems identified for this project:
● LEED (v4 for Building Design & Construction)
● BREEAM (International New Construction)
● DGNB (Core 14)
● Nordic Ecolabel
Note: additionally, a high level analysis and comparison was performed on the draft version of the not yet released system, BREEAM International Non-Domestic Refurbishment and Fit-Out.
It is important to note that the terminology and distinction made in this project regarding
‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ certification systems is not commonly used, and has been made
specifically for this project. This project makes the distinction between the detailed
investigation into the two ‘primary’ certification systems (Active House, and the Nordic Built Charter) described in Work Package 2, Task 2: Compliance strategy for primary certification systems, and the additionally performed high level investigation into the five secondary systems presented here.
