Clear Channel Netherlands recently reached a special milestone, building the 700th bus stop with a sedum roof

In 2018, Utrecht had the scoop and around 300 stops were equipped with a green roof. Since then, Gouda, Zaandam, Dordrecht and Tilburg have been added to the green network, and the counter now stands at 700 Living Roof bus stops with sedum roofs.

The 700th stop with a green roof was placed on the Heuvelring in Tilburg. Clear Channel had the pleasure of speaking to the camera at that location with Rik Grashoff, the councilor for climate, greenery, public space, and mobility in the municipality of Tilburg. He emphasized the significance of sustainability for the city of Tilburg and the many sustainable initiatives that are currently being rolled out in his city.

Anika Ramamurthy, Sustainability Manager at Clear Channel, was also present in Tilburg and explained how the green roofs fit within the company's sustainability policy.

“We have been building our network of green stops since 2018. After winning the Tilburg concession, we started installing almost 50 new green stops there at the beginning of this year. The counter now stands at 700 bus stops with green roofs, spread throughout the Netherlands. An important milestone within our sustainability policy.”
