Abstract

Purpose: This paper aims to assess factors that affect carbon sequestration on green roofs. Design/methodology/approach: The most current academic literature related to carbon sequestration and green roofs carbon sequestration performance was reviewed. Findings: Factors affecting carbon sequestration were discussed and classified into the following factors: plants, physical and maintenance factors. The authors’ findings are significant because they can be used to optimize green roofs performance for carbon sequestration. Originality/value: Factors affecting carbon sequestration will optimize intensive green roofs performance.
