Sempergreen introduces Biodiversity package for green roofs
An estimated 70% of the world’s population is expected to live in cities by 2050. Urbanisation on this scale inevitably has a detrimental effect on plants and animals, which are forced to search for new living environments. Green roofs provide space for nature to grow and flourish in urban districts. As an effective means of increasing the ecological value of extensive green roofs, Sempergreen introduces the Biodiversity package. By applying this off-the-shelf package you not only contribute to more urban nature, but to a better health and increased well-being of people and animals as well.
Nesting grounds, protection and food
The expansion of urban districts disrupts existing ecosystems. The introduction of more green in constructed areas leads to the recovery of nature in cities. Green roofs are a perfect means of achieving this, seeing that they form a natural attraction to bees, butterflies and insects. The Sempergreen Biodiversity package takes this process one step further. By applying this package, you add natural nesting grounds, protection and a source of food to your extensive green roof. This in turn has a positive effect on the living environment of birds, bees, butterflies and other insects.
Carefully selected in cooperation with Dutch Butterfly Conservation
The Biodiversity package is the result of a careful selection process between Sempergreen and the Dutch Butterfly Conservation foundation. One of the principal guidelines in selecting the products was the fact that they have to contribute to a better living environment for birds, bees, butterflies and other insects in the form of nesting grounds, protection and food. In addition, the package had to be easy to apply for every roof-owner.
Complete off-the-shelf package
The Sempergreen Biodiversity package includes everything from sand, Sempergreen Biodiversity roof garden substrate, gravel, multi-coloured Maas river boulders, branches, a Biodiversity plant assortment featuring perennials, herbs and grasses, to a Dutch Nature Monuments insect hotel. Applying the Sempergreen Biodiversity package requires a roof area of 6 square metres. The package can also be applied in gardens.
