Shanghai closes in on green roof target – China Daily

Shanghai is well on the way to turning most of its rooftops green.

The Shanghai landscaping administration bureau said Monday that so far more than 95,000 sq m of rooftops have been covered in grass and shrubs, very close to the annual target of 100,000 sq m. The city will spend 5 million yuan ($710,000) this year on the campaign.
