Urbanscape is the first in the green roof industry to publish a System EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) for its Extensive Green Roof System!
For architects and specifiers looking to earn points in Building Rating Systems such as BREEAM, LEED, DGNB or HQE, this EPD can now provide points for categories such as ‘product disclosure’ or ‘building life cycle’.

This system EPD, which is the first of its kind, is available to download on our EPDs web-database as well as on the German IBU EPDs website and the European ECO Platform EPDs website.

This system EPD is helping disclose more product sustainability information about the product’s life cycle.

For example, 1 m² Urbanscape Extensive Green Roof System can sequestrate up to 15 kg CO2/m² over the life of the product.
What’s more, 100% of the drainage system materials are made from recycled materials, which lowers the overall impact on the environment.
Furthermore 100% of the product components can be composted and recycled at the end of its life.

 

Urbanscape Extensive Green Roof System is the perfect sustainable product for the whole building life cycle.
