United Kingdom

Every current and future flat roofed building should have a green roof, to:

  • Reduce building heating requirements in winter (extra insulation) and cooling requirements in summer (lower overheating through roof).
  • Reduce urban heat island effect in cities.
  • Slow runoff of water to avoid local flooding.
  • Provide additional greenspace for building occupants.

Simple, cost effective stuff!
