From SPUR:

This month, our guest speaker is Amy Norquist, founder and CEO of Greensulate, a green roof company that installed more than 1/3 of the new green roofs in New York City last year. Amy will share the latest news from the green roofs world, including recent construction costs, and what changes in the policy environment are helping green roofs flourish in places like New York, Chicago, and Portland. Amy is coming all the way from Los Angeles to share her experience with SPUR on green roof policy development, and her thoughts on how to inspire developers and homeowners with green roofs, which can help cities adapt to climate change, filter and retain stormwater, create habitats, improve air quality, and more.  (For more information, read Malcolm Gladwell’s interview with Amy in GOOD magazine here).
