Green Rewards! - About social and economic benefits of urban green

In this publication you can read about the economic benefits of greenery and how you can generate income or realize savings using green, using many Dutch examples. Because: Groen Rewards !, we are convinced of that. When the green is used as a solution - think of water retention, improving air quality, preventing degradation of the living environment, stimulating movement, etc. - then green is an investment instead of a cost item. And because green is multifunctional, the costs involved in the design of public green space need not be borne by the green budget, but can be drawn from various portfolios within municipalities (water management, care and welfare, sport and recreation traffic and transport, climate and energy, building and housing, finance and taxes) and beyond.

For example, trees and plants lead to collaboration within municipal departments and between municipalities, developers, construction parties, the health sector, climatologists, urban planners, tree nurseries, large green workers and gardeners. That is profit for all parties involved.
