New law in France: Green roofs or solar panels in every commercial building

In France a new law has been passed to secure that every building constructed for commercial purposes has either green roofs or solar panels in their top roofs.

This initiative helps to build up concern about environmental friendly construction together with the promotion of the already well known solar panels and the not that well known green roofs.

Thanks to green roofs the limited space in the cities is wisely used

Solar panels would help to provide energy to the building activities and green roofs play an important role as well. Thanks to green roofs the isolation of the buildings improves so that more energy is saved in terms of heating and air conditioning.

Moreover, green roofs can help to reduce water run-off during rainstorms, they improve the urban landscape and provide the possibility to have a garden with agriculture.

A big step forward to improve life quality in urban areas, sustainability and reduce energy costs.

    Waterproofing aside Gardens on roof in this UN year of soil need serious science input. 1st only 2-4% of plants sequester CO2e to soil hence nutrients and soil renewing. 2nd 96% of bushes trees take biomass carbon from soil and what CO2 it takes in during the day emit such at night. High rise buildings around such gardens could have high atmospheric emissions and a case at law. Best the Government takes advice and can see results by December UN assembly. Robert Vincin

    First of all thanks for your comment and interesting information attached. There are always different side effects/ implications to consider when implementing a project like this and thus is essential to based it on reliable and accurate information. I believe that´s one of the big challenges of our time, good science, good communication and good implementation of enviornmental actions.
