In addition to aesthetic upgrading of the environment, Green Roofs have ecological, technical and economic benefits.

Ecological Benefits

  • Decreases high air temperatures in densely populated urban areas (cement cities).
    Green Roofs cool and moisten the air that surrounds us, creating a microclimate that has a beneficial effect on our immediate environment.
  • They constitute a natural habitat for animals and plants.
    Green Roofs create biodiversity, favor wildlife development, such as birds, butterflies, insects, and help them stay in populated urban areas.
  • Decrease levels of dust and smoke.
    The vegetation of Green Roof helps to filter air from dust and smoke particles. Nitrates and other airborne infections are absorbed by the air, they fall with rain and end up in the soil.
