the urban greening market



The urban greening is a process or art of populating buildings ( terraces , roofs , walls etc.) of plants . The roof greening system corresponds to a set of materials and plants installed on a specific surface with the objective of ensuring the durability of both the vegetation and the construction.

One of the fundamental elements of urban greening is what supports the plant elements (concrete slab, steel tank, wooden panels, etc.) which, depending on the nature and technical definition, are able to support different loads and uses. A waterproof coating, resistant to root penetration, is essential for the long-lasting operation of the unit. Thermal insulation, usually placed under the waterproofing coating, completes the greening technique.

With several million square meters installed France is a pioneer in the green roof market in the world. Only a few players, mainly in the field of waterproofing and construction shells, share the niche market of green roofs and urban greening in France.

The players in the urban greening market in France are counting on hEQ projects and the taking of eco-responsible conscience prescribers to ensure their continued growth. The urban greening market in France can count on the new regulatory requirements to ensure its continued growth: as part of the biodiversity law adopted in March 2015 by the National Assembly, an amendment makes it mandatory to install "renewable energy production processes" or a "Vegetation system" on the roofs of new commercial premises.
