The ASBC (ÖGNI) encourages the sustainability in the built environment in Austria.  It issues (pre-)certificates according to the DGNB system and provides rating systems for various building types.

The ASBC organizes the training of auditors in cooperation with Austrian universities and coordinates independent audits of the documentation of sustainable buildings submitted by ASBC auditors.  It regularly organizes events with different focal points, to raise awareness and further develop the idea of sustainability in the built environment.

ASBC auditors carry out the audit for obtaining a certificate and maintain contact between the certificate issuer (ÖGNI GMbH) and the certificate applicant.
