Sustainable Building with KÖSTER TPO Roofing Membranes
Stuttgart, 03.02.2016: During the Dach + Holz Exhibition in Stuttgart, the KÖSTER BAUCHEMIE AG was recognized by the IBU as a sustainable partner in construction for its roofing membranes. The certificate was awarded by Prof. Dr. Ing. Horst Bossenmayer, president of the IBU, to Managing Director, Dr. Dieter Köster.
In the future, tenders for sustainable projects can utilize information from KÖSTER TPO EPDs regarding the ecological footprint of TPO during the evaluation process of the roofing component and entire building. Unlike other roofing membranes, such as membranes from PVC, KÖSTER TPO membranes qualify for Gold, the highest certification status awarded by the IBU.
