We certify the first sustainable construction site

Our experts from the Sustainability Department successfully implemented the certification for the first sustainable construction site of the PORR Group in Salzburg. The "DGNB Sustainable Building Site" certificate focuses on construction operations and considers all activities that are the responsibility of the general contractor.

PORR Salzburg Branch

This covers a wide range of topics, such as construction site organization, resource conservation, health and social issues, and communication with the local public:

Construction site organization

  • Well organized construction site
  • Smooth and safe construction process
  • Minimizing the impact on the environment and the consumption of resources during the construction process
  • Protect the health of all those involved in construction
  • Promote social acceptance of the construction measure through comprehensive communication with the neighborhood

Protect resources

  • Circular economy
  • Maintain the value of resources
  • Greatest possible transparency with regard to the chosen processes, recycling and disposal routes for the masses produced during construction
  • Reuse
  • Material recycling
  • Renewable energies
  • Environmentally compatible means of transport
  • Water consumption

Health and social

  • Protection of those involved in construction
  • Preventive health measures
  • Information and
  • Continuing education
  • Training courses

Communication with the local public

  • Acceptance of construction projects
  • Proactive information
  • Appearance of the construction site
  • Stakeholder management

The "DGNB sustainable building site" certificate is a new system from the DGNB that does not yet exist in Austria. Thus, the construction site of the PORR Salzburg branch is a pioneer in this field. Further construction sites as pilot projects will follow. This will enable us to learn from experience and establish a new building standard at PORR. The first pilot construction sites will start as early as October.

Avoid Stranded Assets: Preserve the value of your building

Climate crises are one of the biggest challenges of our time, and we all need to take action - for example, by reducing the carbon footprint of buildings. One way: The Carbon Reduction Path. This method is a strategic approach to reducing carbon dioxide emissions in order to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and limit global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius.


The term "stranded assets" has recently gained prominence.

The main focus here is on environmental and climate-related factors that can render buildings worthless in a comparatively short time. Without decarbonization measures, the majority of properties are in danger of becoming stranded assets if, as expected, CO2 emissions are audited in the future and any penalties become due.

To prevent your property from becoming stranded, we will be happy to analyze it and draw up a climate protection roadmap. Contact our experts now:
