Global Cool Cities Alliance

GCCA’s website is the online hub for cities that are cooling urban surfaces—including roofs and pavements—to help combat the effects of climate change.

An interactive educational feature depicts and describes how cooling roofs can positively impact all areas of a city, from its economy to the health and well-being of its citizens.

Visit the site at, or go straight to the feature: Unlock the Benefits of Reflective Cool Roofs.
