COURSE NO: C02-075
Estimating the Environmental Effects of Green Roofs
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides insight on how to estimate the positive environmental effects of green roof installations in cities. This is accomplished by providing a brief introduction to the basic concepts and definitions relating to urban environmental pollution, followed by a case study of the Kansas City metropolitan area.


A green roof—also called a vegetated roof or eco-roof—is a roof with soil and plants placed on top of a conventional roof. Green roofs are growing in popularity, as they have proven to be a cost-effective strategy for creating more livable and sustainable cities. Integrating nature-based solutions like green roofs into the urban landscape has several benefits to the environment, public health, and society.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to architects, sustainability, environmental, and building engineers, as well as other technical personnel interested in learning more about the numerous benefits of green roof installations in urban areas.
