The Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing (CEIR) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(6) organization whose mission is to promote the development and use of environmentally responsible, high performance roof systems and technologies.  Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the Center serves as a forum to draw together the entire roofing industry to the common cause of raising public awareness of the strategic value of our nation's roofs in reducing energy consumption, mitigating environmental impact and enhancing the quality of the builds in which we live and work.

The core functions of the Center focus on education, promotion and market opportunities in a three prong approach:

  • Educate building designers and owners on the choices available in the high performance roof systems.
  • Promote the integration of high performance design by honoring companies who design long lasting, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly roof systems.
  • Identify market opportunities for the adoption and deployment of high performance roof systems in the U.S. and internationally.
