Dr. Peter Mösle, managing director of EPEA GmbH and partner of Drees & Sommer SE, has been appointed an honorary member of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). The Association thus honors his great commitment to sustainable buildings and his persistent commitment to the circular economy.

The DGNB was founded in Stuttgart in 2007 with the aim of promoting sustainability in the construction and real estate industries. The non-profit association has established itself as the largest network for sustainable construction in Europe and has around 1,500 member organizations who contribute their knowledge as architects, planners, investors and scientists, among others.

Peter Mösle was a founding member of the DGNB from day one. He was also a member of the Executive Committee for twelve years and was responsible for system development for buildings and urban districts for many years as chairman of the DGNB Technical Committee.

“For well over ten years, Peter Mösle has been working to promote sustainable construction in general and DGNB certification systems in particular and to anchor them as a standard in the market. We recognize his exemplary commitment by becoming an honorary member,” says Dr. Christine Lemaitre, managing director of the DGNB since 2010.

Mösle, who studied mechanical engineering, has been a partner at Drees & Sommer SE since 2012 and is responsible for green building, energy management and sustainable urban development. As managing director of EPEA GmbH — Part of Drees & Sommer, he promotes the Cradle to Cradle Design Principle, even beyond the construction industry. “In Germany and internationally, the DGNB certificate stands for demonstrably sustainable buildings and is an extremely recognized seal of quality when it comes to sustainable construction. Building and renovating in an environmentally friendly way is not just a must for our climate. Rather, sustainable approaches such as the DGNB system and Cradle to Cradle are a real innovation opportunity for companies that bring economic success,” he Argues.
