Since the construction of our factory, we have maintained a strong focus on minimizing environmental impacts. We consistently monitor our processes to ensure sustainability and have recently conducted a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), to identify areas of concern and develop plans for improving our production practices. This effort has also resulted in an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which can be found in the downloads section at the bottom of the page.
Our EPD can also be found in the EPD Denmark Database.
MicroShade A/S offers documentation packages for DGNB and BREEAM, which are the leading voluntary certification schemes for assessing the sustainability of buildings.
DGNB is the most recent certification scheme, referred to as a second-generation system. It was launched in Germany in 2008 and is highly comprehensive in its analysis of buildings, considering all aspects of sustainability. Several countries have adapted DGNB to local conditions, resulting in their own versions, but the international DGNB version can also be used. We have compiled a technical document for DGNB, where you can see how MicroShade affects DGNB criteria. Furthermore, complete documentation packages for DGNB 2016, 2018, and 2020 are available for download.
BREEAM, on the other hand, is the British sustainability certification scheme for buildings established in 1990 and is utilized in more than 75 countries. Some countries, such as Germany and Norway, have tailored BREEAM to suit their local conditions, resulting in their own versions. We have compiled a technical document for BREEAM, which outlines how MicroShade impacts its criteria. Additionally, full documentation packages for BREEAM are available for download.
MicroShade A/S offers documentation packages for DGNB and BREEAM, which are the leading voluntary certification schemes for assessing the sustainability of buildings. An overview of how MicroShade can impact DGNB and BREEAM criteria can be found in the MS Technical documents available in the download menu. Furthermore, all documentation is available for download, categorized by sustainability scheme and language.
