Description

Portland, OR, USA. As the Manager of Tremco’s North American Green Roof Program, Elizabeth Hart promotes environmental and economic sustainability through green roofs and living walls. She works closely with architects, contractors, and building owners on the design, installation, and maintenance of over 100 green roofs. Elizabeth received a B.S. in Sustainable Development and Botany from Appalachian State University, focusing on phytoremediation of polluted sites. Her years of working in a medical clinic led to her inspiration for changing the "nature" of healthcare facilities. She is a founding and active member of the Green Roof info Think-tank (GRiT), a network of over 400 businesses, government agencies, researchers, and community members committed to growing the collective knowledge base for on-structure vegetation. She loves nothing more than sharing her passion for green roofing through speaking, teaching, and ultimately making more green roofs happen.
