Green roofs provide multiple public and private benefits and represent a critically important
development in our collective efforts to move towards healthy and restorative buildings and
communities. This survey allows us to measure the degree of policy support among various
governments for this type of living architecture and is one small measure of our progress in
moving towards sustainability in North America. The survey results indicate that there
remains enormous potential growth opportunity on new and existing buildings in cities across
North America. Increasingly, government policy makers are recognizing the wealthy
contribution green roofs can make to addressing common infrastructure challenges and

implementing supportive policies and programs
