Employers and governmental agencies make their facades greener

Groningen municipality organises sessions to encourage green facades as part of its climate policy. The municipality and major employers in the city of Groningen commit themselves to making building facades in the city greener. Brick and concrete walls are transformed into green vertical gardens. These provide more green in the city, contributing to cleaner air and less heat stress and flooding.
