Current and Future Green Roofs

Green roofs are quickly becoming a source of nature-based solutions to address urban heat, stormwater, recreational space, agriculture, energy consumption of the built environment, and more.

USL has an expanding research project to examine the state of current green roofs in New York City, the future potential, and social equity analysis to examine who benefits from green roofs in the city.

The Lab is also collaborating with The Nature Conservancy and Columbia University to produce the most comprehensive assessment of green roofs to date in NYC.
