16/04/2012

The TFI Group has won a contract to work in partnership with livingroofs.org to organise The World Green Roof Congress (WGRC) in Copenhagen this September.

The three-day congress is expected to attract more than 300 of the world’s leading architects, designers and practitioners to discuss the development of green roof technology.

Simon Maier, TFI Group business development director, said the partnership with livingroofs.org marked a key strategic move for TFI Group, affirming its commitment to sustainability.

“This form of long-term commitment and partnership is an effective way of combining the subject knowledge and passion of the biodiversity community with TFI Group’s professional events expertise," he said. “This high quality congress will help elevate green roofs and biodiversity further up the global development agenda. Sustainability is important to the TFI Group and we are also delighted to be able to play our part in raising awareness through live events such as this.”

Dusty Gedge, co-founder of livingroofs.org and the world congress, said: “The World Green Roof Congress has great potential to grow as an event, especially given the increasing interest in all areas of biodiversity and green infrastructure.

"Our partnership with the TFI Group will help to achieve that growth, as we combine different areas of expertise to create a successful congress. The TFI Group brings its specialist events experience and infrastructure, to merge together with our knowledge and passion for the subject."
