Green Roof Award

The Scandinavian Green Roof Award has been given out annually to the best green roof project in Scandinavia - ever since the prize’s inception in 2000 as an initiative of The City of Malmö. The prize tradition is intended to inspire the Scandinavian green roof market toward excellence and to raise public and professional awareness about the multiple benefits of green roofs. The prize acknowledges an organization’s or individual’s role in creating a green roof that raises the standard for quality and value in our field.
