Hosted by the city of Copenhagen and supported by the Danish Ministry of the Environment and the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen, the organizers says the scene is set for a congress that has sustainability at its core. Copenhagen’s ambitious goal of being carbon neutral by 2025 means that greenroofs are embedded as an integral part of political policy.
And, Copenhagen is the first city in Scandinavia to have a mandatory greenroof policy. The new policy makes vegetation and soil a mandatory obligation in planning new developments. The policy covers all roofs that have less than a 30 degree ptich in the new local plans.
