The LivingProof Mission...

LivingProof is dedicated to the education and promotion of living roof construction. Although living roofs (turf roofs or green roofs) have been used in Scandinavia for centuries, there has been a resurgence of popularity worldwide in the last few decades. Originally built to provide building stability and insulation, contemporary living roofs add to these benefits.

In a time where we face dwindling resources, high-energy costs and the depletion of natural spaces, living roofs are sustainable and energy efficient while also rebuilding the open spaces taken over by buildings. Living roofs maintain warmth during the winter and cool temperatures during the summer. Creating open spaces also encourages the return of songbirds, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
