2. Mission & Objective
- Cooperation among governmental as well as private organizations, research institutes, educational institutions, and green roof companies in the Construction of Urban Green Space in the Future-

Our association consists of relevant governmental as well as private organizations, research institutes, educational institutions, and private companies for green space. At first, we came together to discuss the issue on Urban Green Space Project, aiming to change our desolated city filled with grey concrete into a lively one with greening. And so, we made a conclusion; R&D for the modern green technologies and its distribution are the most realistic as well as idealistic solution.
In an effort to find the best ways to proceed with it, we organized “Association for Study on Green Roof,” and released many presentations as well as articles for Roof Greening periodically. Also, we hosted lots of Forums and Conferences, inviting relevant professionals to introduce the needs of roof greening system, the technics as well as methods, and good examples of it.
With our continuous activities, research and studies on the Green Roof Project, finally, we officially established Korea Green Roof & Infrastructure Association (KOGRIA) with the authorization of Ministry of Environment on Jan, 2003. Since then, KOGRIA has constantly tried to create new urban green spaces based on the outcomes and experiences through our studies.
