GRO is an independent not-for-profit Trade Association representing the UK Green, Blue and BioSolar Roofing industries. 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 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. To support this GRO develops guidance documents and generally promotes the adoption of Green/Blue/BioSolar roofing technologies within the built environments.
GRO represents all elements of the UK Green, Blue and BioSolar Roofing industries including manufacturers of waterproofing systems, suppliers of Green/Blue/BioSolar systems and components, specialist contractors from the roofing and landscape sectors) and associates including other trade associations, NGO’s, insurance companies, academia, ecologists, designers and architects. Whether you are active in advocacy, ecology, design, specification, installation or the maintenance of green roofs you are welcome to join GRO.
