The Bundesverband der Spielplatzgeräte- und Freizeitanlagen-Hersteller e.V. (BSFH) was founded in 1983 and has its office in Hilden near Düsseldorf. It is the German industry association for manufacturers of playground equipment, fall protection surfacing and equipment for parks and leisure facilities as well as for installation and maintenance companies typical of the industry.
The association has the goal and the task to protect and promote the common interests of the members in the economic and technical area as well as the fair competition within the scope of its field of interest and to advise and support the members in the technical questions.
The Bundesverband GebäudeGrün e. V. (BuGG) is a merger of the two associations established over many decades, Deutscher Dachgärtner Verband e. V. (DDV) and Fachvereinigung Bauwerksbegrünung e. V. (FBB). By merging the two well-known associations into one large association, duplication of work and investments will be avoided, forces will be bundled, successful building blocks and competences will be combined and thus the impact will be increased. The BuGG is both a professional association and an interest group for companies, cities, universities, organizations and all those interested in greening buildings (roof, facade and interior greening).
Goals of the BuGG:
+ Enlargement of the market of sustainable construction (increase of direct and indirect subsidies, sustainable construction as a matter of course).
+ The BuGG as the first point of contact for sustainable construction.
+ Public relations and image work.
+ Initial information and argumentation for architects and building owners.
+ Technical competence. Technical booklets. Guideline commentary.
+ Market competence. Figures, data, facts on the sustainable construction market.
+ Exchange of experience and cooperation with other associations (“inter-association alliance sustainable construction”), also with the German-speaking neighboring associations from Austria and Switzerland.
+ Network, exchange of experience, contact exchange
+ Practical work aids for members
