Ginkgo Sustainability and Green Business Bureau Partner to Provide Living Wall and Living Roof Solutions to Businesses

Green Business Bureau (GBB) has partnered with Ginkgo Sustainability to offer GBB members Living Wall and Living Roof solutions and services. The partnership is driven by our joint mission to connect the living and built environments through the installation of living roofs and the installation and manufacturing of living walls.

GINKGO offers custom solutions and support to the design, installation and maintenance of green roofs and living walls to help companies achieve their green building goals. Moreover, they’ve installed 60 plus acres of green roofs and provide maintenance services on over 300 current sites. Secondly, their clients include building owners, engineers, roofers, landscape architects, property managers, environmental consultants, and homeowners involved in designing and developing commercial and residential buildings.

“We’re excited to partner with the Green Business Bureau and bring our biophilic services to GBB members. Adding living walls and living roofs is an excellent way to improve employee productivity, regulate building temperature, and increase property value. Earn GBB Ecopoints, earn LEED credits, and enhance building aesthetics.”
