Green roofs have emerged as a pioneering solution to numerous environmental challenges, reshaping urban landscapes across Europe. In recent years, Europe has witnessed a surge in the adoption of green roofs, driven by a confluence of factors including the pressing need to mitigate climate change, enhance urban biodiversity, improve air quality, and manage stormwater runoff. This eco-friendly roofing innovation involves the installation of vegetated systems atop buildings, effectively transforming barren rooftops into thriving ecosystems. While the concept of green roofs traces back to ancient times, modern advancements in technology, materials, and design have propelled Europe to the forefront of this green revolution.

The GREENO2 Handbook is of high importance since it will aim to give the essential context and support to academic community for the best exploitation of the GREENO2 products.

The GREENO2 Handbook is expected to be used by a wide range of interested parties and at the same time to be applied to a broad number of situations, in urban and peri-urban areas.
