  • [01] Green rooftop at Economy Min.

    Economy and Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis and Deputy FinMin Yannis Papathanassiou presented on Monday the ministry's "green rooftop".

    The Ministry is the first to convert its roof into green area, with the planting of suitable plants capable of withstanding all weather conditions.

    The rooftop area is 650 sq. meters and cost approximately 40,000 euros. It was constructed in order to contribute to improvement of the environment in downtown Athens, energy conservation and also reduce the building's maintenance costs.

    The green rooftop has already resulted in a 6 percent decrease in the building's annual airconditioning needs and a 2 percent reduction in its heating needs.

    Alogoskoufis and Papathanassiou stressed that the ministry's initiative is a sequel of the programme " Green life in the city' which was planned in coordination with the Attica periphery, and is incorported in National Strategic Reference Framework 2007-2013.
