No other element in sustainable architecture has seen technical innovations develop so fast, as in the field of green roofs. The present publication contains contributions of 33 experts from 10 countries giving an overview of the present state of green roofs and pointing out perspectives of using green roofs in respect of balancing building energy, rainwater management, environment and climate protection, and green building concepts.

The chapter “An International Comparison of Funding and Support Programmes for Green Roofs“ will provide an overview of political incentives in Germany and on an international level.
