Japan announced its very ambitious Green Growth Strategy at the end of 2020 and we are keen to support their vision .
At Knauf Insulation, we are defined by sustainability: our products save energy and cut emissions, and with our Green Solutions, we advocate and promote the introduction of green infrastructure in urban planning. We therefore want to take an active role and help Japan reach its goals and vision, especially through the integration of green infrastructure in urban areas.
To be close to the market and be able to address its needs, share information about green roof infrastructure science, practice and benefits and to offer them our solutions, we consequently opened an Urbanscape® Green Solutions branch – a green solutions company – in Tokyo at the beginning of November 2021, led by Dzevo Alibegic, PhD.

Our solutions (Urbanscape® Green Roof and Wall systems, Landscaping solutions) will help Japan and other countries in the region convert grey cities into green, will create new living spaces for different animal species, and address climate changes they are facing through the heat island reduction strategies and stormwater management. They will help to create a green oasis where people feel well and live a full life.
To find more, on how we can also support your sustainability visions as well, feel free to check our Urbanscape® Green Solutions website or even better, visit us at EXPO 2020 in Dubai, where we are present with a remarkable green wall on the Slovenian pavilion.
You are especially warmly invited to join us at EXPO 2020 in Dubai during our “Living with a green heart” weeks (between 16– 22.1.2022 and 30.1–5.2.2022 dates) when a group of like-minded companies will, together with the visitors, explore how sustainable solutions and social sustainability actions (especially those focused on people’s well-being) can lead to a better world for all of us (you can already register here).
