On June 2, the Green Parking Council (GPC) officially released the Green Garage Certification program.
As the parking industry’s equivalent of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification, the Green Garage Certification is the only rating system defining and recognizing sustainable practices in parking structure management, programming, design, and technology.
Green Garage Certification is a voluntary, consensus-driven standard promoting an integrated approach enabling parking structures to achieve a wide range of goals including increased energy efficiency, reduced environmental impact, efficient parking management, and more.
This launch is truly a milestone for the parking industry, and will set the course for the successful integration of parking and sustainability long into the future.
