Ancient Roots, Modern Innovations
Ancient roots, along with modern industry research and innovation, have inspired people across the globe to transform unused roofs into functional spaces. As a result, green roofs, or gardens in the sky, now dot urban skylines in every corner of the world from Iceland to Australia and from Africa to America.
Celebrating Thousands of Green Roofs
Millenia has passed since the marvelous Hanging Gardens of Babylon once existed. Today, on World Green Roof Day, we celebrate the many thousands of green roofs covering our planet.
More than Aesthetically Pleasing
From simple sod roofs to high performing, lightweight detention systems, beautiful, living green roofs are bringing nature back to our urban core. They are pleasing, healing and helping build resilient cities.
Stormwater Management to Habitat Restoration
For instance, the main benefits of green roofs are stormwater management and protection from the elements, such as flash floods and extreme heat. Also, green roofs offer habitat restoration, food security and urban agriculture.
Photovoltaics and Green Roofs
Furthermore, modern lightweight green roofs may be combined with solar panels to transform almost any rooftop into an ideal tool for urban sustainability and climate change adaptation.
