GREENpass® – the world’s first planning, simulation and certification tool to optimise the multiple effects of urban green infrastructure
Green4Cities offers detailed planning and certification of ecosystem services of green infrastructure on city quarters and buildings. The GREENpass® method expands the world’s leading microclimatic simulation software ENVI-met in terms of building integrated greenery and resource indicators. Together with the ENVI-met team we have created an interface, called the GREENpass® modelling editor (GP.me), which allows users to convert conventionally used planning principles (by CAD or GIS) directly in a microclimate model, and to evaluate and optimise their projects.
