Green Roofs Growing

From Green Building Product Dealer, May 2008 Issue

“30 percent more green roofs were installed in North America in 2007 than in 2006, according to the Green Roofs for Healthy Cities’ 3rd Annual Green Roof Market Industry Survey.  That tops the previous year’s impressive growth rate of 25 percent.  The numbers are based on square footage of green roof projects installed by GRHC’s corporate members in 2007.

‘Significant green roof implentation can save tens of millions of dollars from reduced energy, and greatly improve regional stormwater management and air quality,’ said Steven W. Peck, founder and president of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.

The City of Chicago remains the number one city for green roofs with over half a million new square feet of green roofs installed in 2007, evidence of the City’s stated commitment to becoming America’s greenest city through policies and incentives that support green roofs, walls, and other forms of living architecture.”
