Research and development work

The first innovation to come out of our development work, the green wall, began from the idea to bring a small part of the rainforest into interior space. Today our modular green wall is a product protected by EU patent and Chinese utility model patent.

The wide and up-to-date knowledge we have on nature is the driver of our research and development work. We share and improve our know-how through different cooperation projects such as the Virtual Verdue Project, which reforms the idea of green infrastructure. We develop and create new solutions with thought, enthusiasm and on the terms of nature.

Verdant noise attenuation wall

2023 in Helsinki

The goal was to create a temporary noise attenuation wall, which not only met the needs of urban development but offered the residents a place where to enjoy nature’s serenity in the middle of the city. The project was carried out in cooperation with Parkly and WSP, for the City of Helsinki.

Flourishing container

2023 in Helsinki

The goal was to improve citizens’ well-being by landscaping a shipping container that was used as a charging point for electric cargo bikes with beautiful green solutions. The project was carried out in cooperation with Parkly and EG Trading Oy, for HSY.

Carbon footprint studies of Innogreen’s own products

Ongoing: 2022 in Helsinki

The goal is to study the amount of environmental burden that InnoGreen’s products cause during their life cycle, and where the burden comes from, so that the products can be further developed to be more environmentally friendly. The tool for the calculations was created by the help of Third Rock in 2022.

Outdoor green wall for managing urban runoff

Ongoing: 2022 in Turku and Helsinki

The goal is to research natural ways to purify urban runoff and build a pilot version of an outdoor green wall for filtering urban runoff. The project is carried out in cooperation with Turku Science Park Oy, University of Helsinki, and École Normale Supérieure de Lyon. It is funded by Maj and Tor Nessling Foundation.

Smart cities – Helsinki Innovation Districts

2021 in Helsinki

The goal was to pilot the Green Stop and to turn a bleak area into a green and welcoming place for people to enjoy. The project was carried out in cooperation with Forum Virium.

6aika Kieppi

2021 in Espoo

The goal was to study in practice how outdoor green walls and urban runoff management could be combined effectively while also considering the wishes of local residents. The project was carried out in cooperation with the City of Espoo and it is linked to the outdoor green wall which will be built in Turku during the spring and early summer of 2024.

Microplastics experiment

2020-2021 in Helsinki

The goal was to examine how outdoor green walls could ease the burden that urban runoff causes on nature. We observed that leading the water through a green wall decreases the amount of harmful materials and particles in it significantly. The project was carried out in cooperation with the Baltic Sea Challenges of Helsinki and Turku.

Communal Vertical Greening

2020 in Helsinki

The goal was to pilot green structures that enhance the social and ecological sustainability of cities. The project was carried out in cooperation with the City of Espoo, Sustainable cities, Kera collective, and University of Helsinki. It was funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation.

Virtual Verdure

2019-2020 in Helsinki

The goal was to create smarter ways to build sustainable and carbon neutral urban green structures. The project was carried out in cooperation with Forum Virium and it was funded by Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council.

Smart Kalasatama: Rain Garden

2017 in Helsinki

The goal was to test in practice how green structures that manage urban runoff could improve the functionality of cities. The project was carried out in cooperation with Forum Virium and the City of Helsinki.

InnoGreen’s stabilized plants and moss panels provide a sustainable alternative to plastic plants


Plastic plants have often been seen as the only possible solution for spaces where living plants cannot thrive due to environmental conditions. InnoGreen, known for its green walls and innovative green decor solutions, decided to discontinue the sale of plastic plants starting from the beginning of 2023 and introduced stabilized plants instead. The stabilization method is already familiar to many through our lush moss walls. Moss enthusiasts have good news, as alongside customized solutions, InnoGreen is now launching striking birch-framed moss and lichen boards.
