Our Mission

The Green Roof info Think-tank (GRiT) is a network of businesses, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers and community members joining together to grow the knowledge and use of green roofs in the Pacific Northwest. GRiT is a registered 501c-3 non-profit organization.

 

HISTORY

GRiT was established in 2009 by volunteers looking for ways to advance the green roof industry in Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Over the following years, GRiT served as a forum for sharing research, building relationships, and promoting the green roof industry.
