A green roof reduces the carbon dioxide in the air. Photosynthesis is a process plants use to make energy for themselves. During photosynthesis plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the air.

A 1000 m2 of green roof can absorb 5 tonnes of carbon emissions a year, every year after the day after the green roof is installed.
