    • Reduced energy consumption in some climates.

    • Improved sound absorption in the top floors of buildings.

    • Improved air quality.

    • Lower energy costs due to the cooling effect of plant respiration and the insulation, shading and thermal mass of the plant and soil layers.

    • A less frequent roof replacement schedule due to greater durability than conventional roofs.

    • Reduced storm water management costs.

    • The creation of job opportunities in roof installation and maintenance and in the emerging field of urban agriculture.
