Green curtains

Kyocera, a technology company, has used trellises to establish ‘green curtains’ at 12 of its sites in Japan. As well as absorbing carbon dioxide, the curtains reduce outer wall temperatures by up to 15°C in summer, reducing the need for air conditioning.

The vegetables harvested from the curtains are used in the staff canteens.
