Green roofs can reduce the Carbon Footprint of your building.


Geosynthetics often form part of a Green Roof system. Developers, planners and architects are increasingly recognizing the benefits of living roofs, as they provide an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly solution for a roofing system; it is for this reason that their use has increased year on year. Green roof systems offer a number of benefits, and among others they:


· reduce the Carbon Footprint of the building


· improve storm water management by reducing runoff (SUDS)


· reduce the effect of the ‘Urban Heat Island’


· improve biodiversity in urban areas


· enhance the insulation properties of the roof


· provide additional space for urban use
