Ensure that You Effectively Use Eco-Friendly Building Designs

Our sustainability experts can train building management teams in building systems maintenance and help to ensure that architects, owners and builders use eco-friendly designs effectively.

We facilitate communication between your company and the relevant green building council or certification body to help you attain green building certification. This includes preparing all design and construction documents and contracts before submitting them to the relevant certification body.

TÜV SÜD provides you with the guidance necessary to navigate the requirements of national and international green building rating systems such as LEED, BREEAM and DGNB. Furthermore, TÜV SÜD plays a key facilitation role between you and the relevant green building council or certification body and ensures that your commitment to sustainability is well documented according to the requirements.


Our training services address all areas of green buildings. We help you understand how to align your energy goals and practices in order to improve efficiency, reduce costs and gain a competitive edge. We can train your relevant members of staff to understand how continuous energy improvement leads to such a decrease in costs, improved corporate image, energy conservation, and reduced carbon emissions.

We offer our training in various formats including webinars, competency assessments, public training, and in-house training. Our main goal is not only to ensure that your staff is well versed in all areas of green buildings and energy efficiency, but also help keep you informed of the latest management systems and compliance issues.
