Improved Air Quality

Green roofs absorb pollutants from the air and help to clean the atmosphere. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which helps to improve air quality in each and every region.

Rainwater Management

Green roofs reduce surface runoff and the load on sewer systems by retaining rainwater and allowing it to evaporate. This helps to prevent flooding and relieve the urban sewage system.

Temperature Regulation

Through the evaporation of water and the shading effect of vegetation, green roofs help to regulate the temperature on roof surfaces. This can help to reduce the overheating of buildings in summer and reduce the energy required for air conditioning.

Energy Efficiency

Green roofs serve as an additional layer of insulation that reduces heat transfer between the building and the outside environment. This can reduce heating and cooling costs, resulting in improved energy efficiency of the building.


Biodiversity and Habitat

Green roofs provide habitats for various plant and animal species, including insects and birds. This contributes to the promotion of urban biodiversity and creates ecological niches in urban environments.

Longevity and protection of the roofing material

The vegetation on green roofs protects the roof, waterproofing from weather influences such as UV radiation, temperature fluctuations and mechanical wear. This can extend the service life of the roofing material.
