The independent international organisation for public-private cooperation hailed the project as an exemplar in a video, which highlights the way in which we’re taking embedding nature back into our buildings and cities to a whole new level.
World Economic Forum stats show that green roofs can reduce air pollution in surrounding areas by 30-57% and counteract the ‘urban heat island’ effect during our increasingly hot weather.
That’s in large part why we’re delivering one of Europe’s largest rooftop Urban Forests at Roots in the Sky – with 125 mature trees, 10,000 plants and over 1,000 tonnes of soil.
“Governments, the private and public sectors, think tanks and communities worldwide must take collective action to restore, reforest and maintain forest ecosystems across the globe.”
