In 2012 Denmark launched the DGNB certification system. The implementation of DGNB in Denmark is, however, meeting some challenges. Research had focus mainly in the technicalities of the system. But social constraints are also extremely important, and have not been addressed in research. This thesis focused on the stakeholders’ perceptions of the DGNB certification system in Denmark. The goal was to understand how DGNB is perceived and how sustainability is being interpreted by different stakeholders. And finally to assess how do that influence the introduction of sustainability concepts in the sector.
