Enabling livable cities
About the Project
© Greenpass GmbH
Our GREENPASS® software is the first to make it possible to assess the environmental impact and effects of buildings, materials and plants on people and the environment and to make these effects understandable and visible. Our toolbox offers the right tool for successfully adapting to climate change and improving people's quality of life in every planning phase.
GREENPASS is a simple and efficient tool for analysing and optimising six urban challenges: climate, water, air, biodiversity, energy and cost. The unique assessment and certification system, which can be used around the world, enables full control for creating liveable cities and architecture. The software serves as a bridge between planning and science with the vision of creating climate-resilient and liveable cities.
For GREENPASS, there is no question that opportunity means using the current discussion in society happening around climate change as an opportunity to do something: to take innovative, field-tested and efficient software-based services that were developed in Austria through years of research and with strong support and roll them out internationally. GREENPASS was developed precisely for this purpose. With over 85 projects in 10 countries in Europe, GREENPASS and over 30 trained urban climate architects (UCAs) are setting the international standard for climate-resilient urban planning and architecture.
GREENPASS was founded as a Vienna startup and spin-off of Green4Cities and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, in 2018. Its vision and mission are to create climate-resilient and liveable cities around the world. The GREENPASS technology has been developed over the last 10 years with scientific and international input and is the world's first software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that offers ideal tools and the world's first certification standard for urban planning and architecture that is fit for the future and climate change.
