New York City's Cool Roof Initiative encourages building owners to cool their rooftops by applying a reflective white coating that reduces energy use, cooling costs and carbon emissions. The program supports NYC's goal to reduce Greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent by 2030.

"By giving it a COOL ROOF, it will cut the monthly air conditioning bill by roughly half."
- NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg

"When we do the right thing for the environment, far more often than not, it is also the right thing for the economy."
- Al Gore, Former Vice President
