is a global network, for the promotion and dissemination of information on Green Roof topics and Green Roof technology. Due to the status as multi-national, non-profit organisation, IGRA offers the platform and infrastructure for independent "pro Green Roof" lobby work with political decision makers and investors. IGRA members are national Green Roof organisations, Green Roof research institutes and Green Roof companies. IGRA also welcomes persons and Green Roof experts, who support the ecological Green Roof idea, to join the Green Roof network.
The basic idea of IGRA is the support of the Green Roof market on an international level by sharing knowledge and experiences in the field of Green Roof technology and public relations. In this context, the IGRA secretariat will serve as a global networking and co-ordination centre. Typical activities of IGRA include workshops, conferences, publications and newsletters.
IGRA´s international Green Roof platform facilitates the exchange of experiences among the members of the network.
A quarterly newsletter will present new developments in Green Roof technology, outstanding Green Roof projects, activities of IGRA members and a calendar of Green Roof events.
