Excursion to the best green roofs and green facades in Bratislava and Vienna

Green roofs have many benefits to help us adapt to the negative impacts of climate change. Every year we experience droughts, heat waves and floods. Vegetated roofs help to cool heat islands in cities, retain rainwater so that it does not run off into drains, increase biodiversity, or create new living spaces in office or commercial centres. They also combine well with photovoltaics and improve their efficiency.

In order for green roofs to work and fulfil their function in the long term, they need to be installed in the right way. That is why the Green Roof Association has issued Standards for the design, implementation and maintenance of vegetated roofs, which we will present at the conference.
