Certification of building products

Climate change is here, and the conse­quences of climate extremes such as heat records, heavy rain and storms are endangering people and buildings. It is therefore a matter of slowing down climate change through sustainable and efficiently produced building prod­ucts, but also of protecting against the increasing climate extremes.

Climate-safe building products must therefore be efficient, sustainably pro­duced, free of pollutants, resilient to climate extremes and capable of being recycled. However, transparent evalu­ation systems for these criteria do not yet exist.

With the initiative „“, ift Rosenheim has developed a valua­tion method that enables a transparent statement on the „climate safety“ of building components on the basis of recognised rules and standards.

The evaluation includes criteria of the product and the company (produc­tion). The result is a weighted indicator that companies can market with the associated label „“ in a promotionally effective way.

Further information on details and costs is available on request.

Climate-proof Building for The Future

The technical article provides information on requirements and assessment methods for climate-resilient and sustainable building products. The complete article can be found free of charge on the ift Rosenheim website.


Market research “climate-proof building”

In order to obtain reliable information about the interest of planners, manufacturers, dealers and builders in the topics of sustainability and climate-resilient building, ift Rosenheim conducted an online survey together with B+L Marktdaten. Further information on the survey and insights into the results can be found on the ift Rosenheim website.
