GROWWEST fosters regional dialogue for encouraging green roof policy; forwarding the design, construction and performance of green roofs in Colorado; and brings together parties united for the green roof cause. As a grass roots organization, it is Growwest’s goal to convince the public and politicians that government policies favoring green roofs are good for the environment and the bottom line.
Green roofs are an integral component of sustainable development in the arid West.

Exciting news...Green Roofs have been included in the draft for commercial eligible measures for Boulder County's Climate Smart Loan program. This means that commercial entities will have access to cash to help finance green roof construction and other energy efficiency measures. The residential program has been very successful already and the commercial application will go live in early 2010. Please see http://www.bouldercounty.org/bocc/cslp/cslpintro.html for more info.
