What does the coalition agreement say?
The coalition agreement states that Enschede wants to focus on sustainability. Green roofs allow you to save costs on energy. This is because in the summer the plants block the heat and it is less warm in the house and in the winter it keeps the heat inside the house.
Furthermore, the coalition agreement states that Enschede wants to take measures against heat and flooding in the coming years, as stated earlier, green roofs help against the heat. Because the green roofs consist of a substrate layer and plants, it also stops water. They do not ensure that there is less flooding, but they retain the water so that it goes to the sewer more slowly and floods are less likely. Finally, the green roofs also help for biodiversity and cleaner air in the city.
