As one of the leading manufacturers of systems for time, light and air conditioning controls, Theben AG is involved with campaigns to ensure quality, innovation and sustainability. Beyond that, we are working with our partners to further develop standards in the electrical industry.
The German Sustainable Building Council
(Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen – DGNB e.V.)
The German Sustainable Building Council was founded in Stuttgart in 2007. To promote sustainable building, the organisation has developed a certification system to evaluate particularly environmentally-friendly, resource-saving, economically efficient buildings and accommodation where user comfort is also optimised - the DGNB certificate. DGNB has around 1200 member organisations from all sectors of the building and real estate industry in Germany. A network of partner organisations in numerous countries abroad ensures international adaptation and implementation of the certification system.
Elektromarken. Starke Partner.
Quality, innovation, achievement, reliability and design - these are the values you expect from our brand. Therefore we are members of the initiative "Elektromarken. Starke Partner.", which furthers these values. Thus Theben and our partners ensure the quality and service in electrical engineering, support our distribution partners with advertising material, and develop documents for sales promotion.
Smart Home / Smart Living are the synonyms for the digitization of the living environment. Extensive Internet access, increasingly networkable components in the home, wireless and mobile communication possibilities open up fundamentally new applications related new business models. Paul Schwenk, Member of the Executive Board Theben AG: "Todays challenge is to make smart solutions – across across manufacturers and technologies intuitively operable. Only then can we fully enjoy the benefits of smart technologies and the topic will be widely accepted by the different target groups. With the „Smart Living“ initiative, we put the optimal foundation."
