With establishment of the International Roofing Alliance, in short IRoofA, several objectives will be pursued: On the one hand, solutions of environment-related problems will be campaigned for in general. IRoofA has therefore made it their common task to improve sustainability and quality of roofing and building envelope further worldwide. The well-being and health of people take centre stage here.

Other focal points of the work include securing the junior staff and skilled workers, as well as the occupational health and safety. The challenges are very similar across the world in this regard. Through exchange of experience and joint projects, the three partners will support each other and find the right solutions effectively and quickly. Another special project is already being implemented: creation of a dictionary of international technical terms for the roofing industry.

The speciality: Members of the IRoofA have been working closely together for many years. In regular meetings - 3 to 4 times a year - the partners exchange views and implement the solutions in their spheres of action. All three partners publish their own trade rules and critically share the responsibility for arranging a leading roofing trade fair:

  1. Germany: DACH+HOLZ International (Cologne and Stuttgart on a rotating basis)
  2. China: China International Roofing & Waterproofing Expo (Shanghai and Peking on a rotating basis)
  3. USA: International Roofing Expo (changing locations in North America)
