KFW funding for buildings with the "Quality Seal Sustainable Buildings" (QNG)

What is QNG?
The QNG is an official, governmental seal of approval that takes a holistic view of a building and its environment as a system. Instead of only looking at energy consumption during use, the entire life cycle, including production and subsequent recycling of the materials used and effects on health, play a role here, among other things.


What are the requirements of the QNG?
The criteria in the QNG manual ensure that a residential building complies with requirements for climate protection, conservation of natural resources, health protection and the quality of the planning process. For example, space requirements, deconstruction and recycling options at the end of the building's useful life, but also acoustic and visual comfort, such as daylight, play a role. The criteria are governed by fact sheets. There are two levels: QNG-PLUS with somewhat lower requirements and QNG-PREMIUM.


To make our eligible products easily accessible to you, we have provided these products with our QNG ready label.

AGLAIA price adjustment as of 01.07.2021

The shortage is exacerbated by an economic upswing, especially in China, which means that the available raw materials no longer reach Europe at all, but are sold at higher prices in Asia. The supply situation is tense.

The situation is currently exacerbated by a global shortage of containers, which has led to a sharp rise in transport costs from Asia to Europe and put an additional brake on exporters. Due to the increased demand in Asia as well as equipment failures and limited availability, price increases of up to 100% have occurred.
