Welcome to the European Federation of Green Roof Associations

Welcome to the EFB - the organisations that brings Europe's green roof associations together. The ten associations promote and encourage the uptake of green roofs in their countries to help address issues related to climate change, ecosystem services, green infrastructure and lack of green space in the built environment.

The Association also reaches out to non-member countries to facilitate the growth in green roofs and the establishment of an national association.

Interested non-member individuals, companies and public bodies can contact our office for advice and help.

'Green roofs offer an important way forward in urban greening, bringing wildlife back into the urban realm and providing much needed ecosystem services to the built environment. In Europe we believe that our cities and towns need to embrace green roofs to ensure that we adapt and mitigate our impact on the environment.'
Dusty Gedge
President - EFB, January 2010

Origins of the EFB

The original green roof associations of Austria, Germany and Switzerland established the European Federation in 1997. Since then the following associations have joined: Dutch, Belgian, Scandinavian, Hungarian, Italian, Polish and British associations. In 2010 the Greek association is likely to become the 11th member.

The Federation and its national members actively promote the use of green roofs and green facades throughout Europe. Such technologies are known to provide a better quality of life for towns and cities. They also return sealed surfaces back to nature.
