In the midst of Istanbul’s sprawling concrete jungle lies Turkey’s “first vertical forest.” With nine hundred trees climbing up its geometric façade, the 16-floor building towers over those around it, serving as an urban landmark for the growing green building trend. For residents of Istanbul, the project is known as Greenox, a play on the words “green” and “oxygen.”

What are ‘green mortgages’? At the moment, there is no universal definition of green mortgages, but they usually refer to mortgages on energy efficient homes. It might be useful to expand this definition to include climate resilience as well as energy efficiency. The reasoning behind promoting green mortgages is that owners of energy-efficient homes might be less likely to default on their payments. Since energy efficiency lowers energy use, energy-efficient homes should have lower bills.
