- Outline in English : OUTLINE: Finding practical and effective ways to implement sustainable development remains a significant challenge in Canada. One approach involves using green roof and vertical garden technologies on residential, institutional, industrial and commercial buildings. These technologies address a number of economic and environmental challenges facing Canadian cities. They provide such benefits as better air quality, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved storm water management and long-term economic advantages, plus social benefits.
