Our mission is to make cool roof innovation accessible to the people who are most at risk from heat stress but have the least financial means to protect themselves from its effects.
Exposure to high heat and humidity can negatively affect health and well-being. Heat waves kill thousands of people each year and are becoming a greater threat with climate change. Long-term exposure to heat stress can increase the risk of serious illnesses.
Cool roofs and other passive strategies can make indoor spaces cooler, more comfortable, and healthier.
