The Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing is pleased to collaborate with Roofing Contractor to provide a monthly perspective about roofing and the environment. Sustainable Roofing is a monthly column written by Dr. Jim Hoff, who serves as Research Director for the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing, Washington, D.C. (www.roofingcenter.org). The column examines many aspects of roofing and sustainability, with a focus on how roofing contractors can become better equipped to participate and profit in the new green building market.
