The 2012 International Roofing Expo® [IRE] is launching the Sustainability Pavilion, a designated area on the show floor to provide education and resources to attendees interested in this innovative and cutting-edge segment.

Exhibitors participating in the Sustainability Pavilion include Advanced Green Technologies, Ameresco Solar, Asphalt Shingle Grinding Service, Cool Roof Rating Council, Colbond, EcoStar, KBI Flexi-Pave, Orion Energy Systems, Phase Change Energy Solutions, Schletter, and SunMizer Solar Roofing Systems, to name a few.
