Green building certifications

Kvadrat Acoustics solutions reflect our commitment to drive positive change through transparency. They contribute to an array of sustainable building certifications, such as DGNB, LEED, BREEAM, WELL and HQE, and with yearly updated EPDs.

Certifications such as these play a critical role in fostering knowledge and trust. They also provide you as an architect and designer with benchmarks for evaluating the environmental social and economic impact of their buildings.
