Green roofs in Copenhagen

Since 2010, the guidelines for green roofs prescribe, that new buildings with flat roofs (less than 30-degree slope) must have green roofs. Green roofs are advantageous for a city like Copenhagen, that strives to be carbon neutral. They absorb rainwater, delaying the water on its way to the sewer system. They soak up carbon dioxide, improving the city’s general environment and they create recreational oases in midst of the hectic city.
