While urban growth accelerates worldwide, urban areas are getting more and more vulnerable to climate change. Urban Heat Islands (UHI), air pollution and pluvial flooding are major threats to urban neighbourhoods and the health and wellbeing of citizens. Urban planning processes have to consider future climate, extreme weather conditions and their impact on humans, buildings and the entire city environment in order to design livable climate resilient cities.
Green Infrastructure (GI) and nature-based solutions (NBS) can be highly effective in mitigating the adverse impacts of climate change and enhancing the quality of life in urban areas.
GREENPASS® makes the effects of green infrastructures visible, measurable and comparable, enabling the efficient planning of livable cities by delivering comprehensive information about a project’s performance on: Climate, water, air, biodiversity, energy and cost.
GREENPASS® delivers a free software and a standardized methodology with a fixed set of climate-resilience key performance indicators (KPIs) to optimize your project’s performance.
GREENPASS® is a easy-to-use software that allows CAD and GIS format import and it is powered by ENVI-met®, one of the world’s leader for microclimate simulation of urban areas.
According to need it can be used in different planning phase of urban development and retrofit solutions.
R2M Solution and GREENPASS® are partner in the Horizon 2020 EU-funded project “Nature4cities”, which main goal is create a comprehensive reference Platform for Nature Based Solutions (NBS).
