Carbon footprint benefits

A living wall can help reduce environmental impact.

According to the Special Report on Global Warming by the IPCC, every half-degree matters. The difference of 0.5°C between 1.5 and 2°C can have permanent consequences, such as ecosystem loss and extinction. Greeningup’s UK-made living wall solutions are intended to assist global climate action to limit warming to 1.5°C.

Benefits of a living wall

What are the health and wellness benefits of a living wall?

Living walls have health benefits in addition to their visual value.

Bringing nature into the built environment boosts health and productivity. Biophilic design improves mood, clarity, creativity, and healing. As urban populations grow, these benefits are needed more and living walls are one of the ways to do this.

Biophilic design brings nature to patients and employees alike. What if the NHS featured living walls within the grounds? How quickly would patients get discharged? How much would stress decrease? How much better would people feel? Nature’s power and effect are and will always be unique.

What are the advantages of a living wall for a building?

No other building material can accomplish this.

Green infrastructure exists at the interface of architecture, landscape architecture, and the natural environment. Greeningup is proficient in these areas. No other cladding offers these benefits: fifty percent decrease in urban heat effect, regulation of ambient temperatures, relief from sick building syndrome, extension of fascia lifespan, and establishment of safer green spaces.

However, living walls can transform unattractive structures such as parking garages, shopping centres, and warehouses into appealing ones. Living walls can help minimize annoyances produced by noise from people or vehicles and pollution from buildings and vehicles.

What are the advantages of a living wall for the environment?

Living walls are beneficial to our environment no matter their size.

They support urban biodiversity and provide economic and ecological benefits. Vertical greening can lower urban noise pollution by 975 dB, filter PM10 by 22–50 percent in street canyons, offset carbon footprints, provide urban microclimates, and filter harmful toxins/dust particles.
Living walls show customers, the public, employees, shareholders, and the government your brand’s environmental and sustainability commitment.

Living wall will reach more people than CSR report.
They can transform the look and aroma of locations near recycling and rubbish dumpsters and wastewater treatment or food processing equipment. According to research on vegetation buffers for managing animal farm odours, leaf and other aerial plant surfaces remove dust, gas, and microbes from airstreams.
