HumboldtHafenEins is currently the “greenest office building in Berlin” and is among the top ten sustainable office buildings in Germany. The managing director of OVG Germany, Martin Rodeck, highlighted the award of the certificate: “The fact that we have received the Platinum Plaque for our first new building project in Germany is both an affirmation and encouragement for us.”

“The introduction of the Certificate in Platinum is an important step for the DGNB. We are delighted to be presenting the first Platinum Plaques at Expo Real”
