Even our buildings are green

We place great store by the sustainable construction and modernization of our office buildings. We are increasingly focusing on ensuring that our office buildings have been certified in line with modern ecological standards. This helps our employees feel good at work while at the same time conserving resources. 

Our Silver Tower near Frankfurt's central station is an example of this type of green building. Following refurbishment, it was awarded silver-level certification by the German Sustainable Building Council. This requires us to meet different sustainability criteria relating to six issues – ecology, economy, sociocultural and function-related aspects, technology, process workflows, and location.

The headquarters of DB Engineering & Consulting in Berlin now bears the LEED platinum seal, while other DB buildings, such as DB Schenker's head office in Frankfurt, have been built new in line with sustainability-focused standards.
