The Green Roof Organisation (GRO) is an independent not-for-profit Trade Association that represents companies, organisations and people involved in or interested in Nature-based roof solutions that help our towns and cities mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change whilst making them nicer, healthier places to live. GRO members positively contribute to the delivery of living green roofs that support nature, provide amenity, attenuate rainwater and generate solar energy, helping ensure no roof goes unused.
Our Vision is for every city and town in the United Kingdom to require high quality green roofs on new build flat roofs, whether for amenity, biodiversity gain, rainfall management or simply their pure beauty. We will aim to drive the retrofitting of green roofs to existing buildings, where structurally possible, for the same reasons.
Our Mission is to support the delivery of high quality self-sustaining green roofs whilst informing the United Kingdom’s legislators, building developers, occupiers and educators about the wide range of environmental, social, health and curriculum benefits.
Whether you are active in ecology, design, specification, installation or the maintenance of green roofs you are welcome to join GRO. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
