By James R. Kirby - January 2013 - Roofing
The Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing (CEIR) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase the development and use of environmentally responsible, high-performance roof systems and technologies. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., CEIR serves as a forum to draw together the entire roofing industry to the common cause of raising public awareness of the strategic value of roofs in reducing energy consumption, mitigating environmental impact, and enhancing the quality of buildings.
The center produces research and information products designed to help guide members' business decisions, improve the roofing industry's policy and regulatory environment, and educate consumers on the array of environmentally responsible roofing options available.
The center is behind the development of the RoofPoint™ program, an environmental rating system for the design, construction, and maintenance of roof systems.
