Green Roofs Increased 30% in 2010 Despite Economy (10 Reasons)

I remember the first book I read on green roofs, several years ago — it made them look so awesome and dreamy and predicted a huge growth, images of whole cities covered in green… but it was actually already decades old and not much had changed on the rooftops of the U.S. or the world.

However, these days, it seems the growth is finally arriving. In 2010, despite a very weak economy, the U.S. green roof market grew 30%. Approximately 8-9 million square feet of green roofs were reportedly added last year, largely in large cities like Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C. that have implemented good green roofing policies.
