Become a member !

Since the statute amendment, individuals can now become members of natureplus e.V too. We’re currently looking for committed fellow contributors.

At the general assembly of natureplus e.V. on 8th Mai in Berlin, a comprehensive amendment to the statutes was adopted. Since August, the new statutes (see our homepage under "Organization") are registered by the court.

The most important changes at a glance: The economic activity of Awarding the natureplus label (certification) is completely, including all necessary tests and expert assessments, detached from the area of activity of natureplus e.V. This certification business activity will in future be taken over by the newly established natureplus institute SCE Cooperative. The takeover of the business is scheduled for October 2017.

Association becomes environmental organization 

In the future, the Association will exclusively deal with the following tasks:

  • Promoting sustainability, environmental protection and health protection in the construction sector.
  • Scientific research on the development of criteria and test methods to assess construction products and furnishings in relation to their sustainability characteristics.
  • Consumer advice, information and clarification in the field of sustainability in the building industry by means of databanks, publications, information events, trainings, etc.
  • Development and promotion of eco-labels and seals of quality for sustainable construction products, building materials and furnishings, nationally and internationally.

In the future, natureplus e.V. will be more active as a non-profit NGO in the (specialized) public, intensify its networking with our partners in Germany and abroad, interfere in the social debate about the future of construction and will also be politically active for sustainability in the construction industry. All this cannot be achieved only with the work of a handful of employees, but with the help of numerous active members. 

Engaged members wanted

For this reason, the statutes have also been changed at a further point: From now on, committed individuals can become members of the natureplus association; so far only companies and institutions have been allowed. With an annual contribution of only € 100, you can introduce your ideas for the transformation of construction towards climate protection, residential health and sustainability - no matter what your boss says. Here, you can bring your expertise and professional qualifications into a very specialized and thus effective organization and make possible that long-standing knowledge also reach the responsible people, that good alternative products and constructions from the niche find themselves in the social reality.

With the gradual establishment of national subdivisions, we will develop adapted strategies on how to promote sustainable building and the label natureplus in the individual countries of Europe. From next year 2018 natureplus e.V. is also officially recognized as a non-profit organization. In this way - at least in Germany - membership contributions and donations are tax-favored.

Therefore: Become a member of the natureplus e.V.!
