GXN’s subsidiary URBANGREEN® has received the URBIA Award 2015 in the category Green Innovation. Urban Green is awarded for their achievement of bringing more biodiversity in to cities.
Urban Green is a cross-disciplinary project where gardeners, biologists and architects join forces to make the city greener, healthier and more beautiful.
The goal of the Urban Green concept is to strengthen urban biodiversity, to create green corridors and to make food available to insects, birds and other animals. On top of this, the biotopes also have an aesthetic value; the wild plants provide a diversity of shapes, colours and smells that bring joy to the residents of the city.
Urban Green has delivered biotopes for green roofs at Novo Nordisk, Bagsværd, Copenhagen Municipality and around the Biology campus at University of Copenhagen.
