About

What if painting roofs white was the best solution to limit urban heat, GHG, as well as creating thousands of jobs? Recommended by IPCC, « Coolroofing » is an affordable and quick solution for the mitigation and adaptation to climate change. For exemple, in less than 5 years, new yorkers have painted 2 million m2 white. In California, cool roofing is an obligation. Implementing cool roofs in cities around the world can not only help cities stay cooler, they can also cool the world, with the potential of canceling the heating effect of up to two years of worldwide carbon dioxide emissions. CoolRoofers mobilizes communities to create locally biosourced reflective paints, and coat as many roofs as possible !
