Physical health benefits
Green roofs vitally contribute to air cleaning in 3 ways:
removing pollutants from the air directly
preventing additional air pollution
Access to green space can bring about direct improvements in a person’s heart rate, blood-pressure or in respiratory health problems, and can aid general well-being.
Mental health benefits
The addition of a good quality natural landscape to urban areas can positively impact how people feel or work. By reducing stress levels and sadness, additional greenery can lift moods, make people generally feel better and boost their productivity.
