Urban Green Infrastructure for people and climate: Synergies with EU Green Deal & Fit for 55 package

The deployment of urban green infrastructure, such as vegetated roofs and walls, on Europe’s buildings has been increasingly considered as a tool to both mitigate climate change and to help urban areas adapt to its growing impacts, while increasing people’s well-being.

The heatwaves and severe droughts of summer 2022, another signal of our fast-changing climate, clearly stressed the importance of boosting prevention and preparedness, especially in dense urban areas such as European capitals and large cities.

In the framework of the European Green Deal’s goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 while leaving “no person and no place behind”, and of the “Fit for 55” package, this paper aims to outline the multiple benefits of green roofs and walls and how they can contribute to the objectives of some key EU legislative files currently under revision.
