The Scandinavian Green Infrastructure Association (SGIA) is the new name for our association. The name change, proposed by the board early in 2016, was finally adopted at the association’s extraordinary general assembly on June 16th, 2017. The association’s bylaws have been amended accordingly.
The Scandinavian Green Roof Institute (SGRI) will retain its original name and continue working within its present scope of thematic focus.
The name change presents green roofs and walls within the context of nature based solutions and infrastructure, and reflects the organization’s intent to raise stakeholder awareness about the increased sustainability and extensive co-benefits inherent in green infrastructure technologies. The broadened focus will have a minimal effect on the SGIA board’s tasks and operations.
