Sustainable Construction Information

The ÖKOBAUDAT platform is provided as a standardized database for ecological evaluations of buildings by the Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building. At the platform’s core is the online database with life cycle assessment datasets on building materials, construction, transport, energy and disposal processes. With the help of life cycle assessment tools, such as eLCA provided by the BBSR, the entire life cycle of a building can be reconstructed with the ÖKOBAUDAT database. ÖKOBAUDAT is not permitted for performing life cycle assessment of building products.

The datasets are subject to strict quality requirements and can be used in many different building assessment systems. The database system with its search and filter functions enables user-friendly online searches of the datasets.

Data published in ÖKOBAUDAT are publicly available at no charge. The respective owner of the datasets remains responsible for the contents and values.
