ABOUT GREEN ROOF TECHNOLOGY
Grandfather Breuning presenting at Garden Show 1936 Stuttgart. Was he also on a Green Roof mission?
Philosophy - Green Roof Mission
Our mission is to provide our clients with trustworthy and world class knowledge. Because of Green Roof Technology's unmatched experience, our ethical and affordable rates our services pay back already in the process.
We believe that ecological responsibility is not a trendy luxury and affordable only to a few. Instead Green measures and Green Infrastructure have a higher return on investment to an entire society than doing business as usual. In other words, collaboratively acting in concert is what it takes. If we would spend only 10% of our time or money for living green, the economy would super-proportional increase as well as the living quality for all.
With over 40 years business experience in crafting Green Infrastructure we have seen a lot. Our a solid mission and philosophy may collide with those who are just looking for a quick ROI. Because it is not about taking advantage of others but working together for a greater good. In short, from the first pencil stroke to the final seed in the ground we accomplish more with trust.
The best collaborations are, where all have future generations in mind, where our intention will be remembered for trying as best as we can, and where we leave only a footprint.
Unlike others, Jörg Breuning is one of a few people on earth who actively shaped the beginning of the modern Green Roof industry in Europe/Germany more than 4 decades ago. As a result he introduced Green Roofs to North America in 1999 through Green Roof Technology. It is safe to say that Green Roof Technology is one of the founding fathers of Green Roofs in the United States and has been building its portfolio in ecological excellence for over 40 years.
Green Roof Technology is transferring technology from the leading German Green Roof industry to North America. In conclusion Green Roof Technology added tremendous value in biophilic design, sustainable engineering, and Green Infrastructure over the last 20 years. This includes solutions like Green Roofs, Green Walls, Green Rail Road Tracks, natural swimming pools, advanced composting technology, PV/Solar combinations with vegetation, plastic-free green roofs, aggregates for a circular economy through urban mining. Elevating North America into a high level of sustainability and resilience is the path we go.
Because we take our leadership in this industry very serious, we helped establishing organizations such as Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) and green roof standards (ASTM). Further we supported many Americans to successfully start their careers in this industry. Finally, Mr. Breuning put his finishing touches to most known key-players in the North American Green Roof industry.
In addition Green Roof Technology also promotes science, experience, and hands-on techniques for living systems through seminars, workshops, and academic lectures. For instance Green Roof Technology was a crucial part of the first Green Roof research In the USA and is still assisting on new research projects between Europe and North America.
Jörg Breuning, Green Roof Technology provides the missing pieces of the puzzle to masterminds for sustainable design, influencers for environmentally friendly solutions, and initiators for Cradle 2 Cradle principles in North America. This helps to transform innovations into reality on a small or large scale. We also leave the trendy, fancy buzz words to others but provide agile support and vital aids for realization.
