New requirements — that is why we must act now

The turnaround in resources in the construction sector is long overdue.

DGNB

In order to rate a building as sustainable according to EU criteria, the sustainability of materials & products must be assessed. Certification for buildings and districts. The DGNB sets comprehensive requirements for the pollutant content of all installed products and defines four quality levels.

BEG funding

Since the adjustment of BEG funding, not only the usage phase, but the entire life cycle has been taken into account. Sustainable materials are therefore a prerequisite for funding!

Green building certifications

Green building systems such as DGNB, BNB, LEED, BREEAM or WELL place detailed requirements on the installed products.

How does ProCA work?

ProCA is a fully automated web service, which calculates compliance with sustainability requirements based on product characteristics and has compliance declarations generated.

The service can be easily accessed by sending product data from your internal PIM system, any other database, or even from Excel spreadsheets.

All you have to do is send all relevant product data. ProCA calculates from this in a matter of seconds Whether the product is compliant or not and send back the result as an answer.

This makes product reviews for the first time 100% objective and unequivocally. No matter who uses the service — everyone gets the same results.

How can compliance declarations be used?

The PROCA declarations provide added value in two different ways:

1. Integration with planner platforms
Our cooperation partners Heinze, Madaster and BIM&more integrate the PROCA data directly into their platforms at the manufacturer's request. As a result, your products and their sustainable properties are directly visible to the planner and your products are selected more quickly in the project.

2. Integrate with your website
Similar to the planning tools, the results can also be integrated directly into your website. In this way, anyone interested in your product can find the declarations of conformity directly on the website, without the need for a further request.

3. As proof of direct inquiries
Sales representatives of product manufacturers are regularly confronted with inquiries about sustainability data by their customers. In order to be able to answer these questions, there is a considerable amount of communication effort. With PROCA compliance declarations, you can answer all questions that arise directly with a document.
