France Introduces Green Roof Law
« on: November 24, 2015, 07:27:56 PM »
From now on, all new commercial buildings in France must either have a green (flora) roof or solar panels. I think this is absolutely fantastic and exactly the kind of thing we should be pushing for in this country. Imagine how different our cities would look if every commercial building had a green or solar roof? The benefits would be incredible.

The city of Toronto, Canada has a similar law, and I think it's only a matter of time before we start hearing about this in more and more places.

I wonder whether it will become law here. I think a significant proportion already do use solar panels, so a law might no be needed, but it's certainly a good move by france. I wonder whether they will regulate existing buildings too.

I think it's strictly new buildings only. It would be very hard to go through every old building in the country and demand changes, people wouldn't be happy!
