– Eco-Responsible Parking Certification : Eco-Responsible Management and Planning for Parking Lots


The Eco-Responsible Parking Certification is a project to recognize sustainable management and planning practices of parking lots. Since February 2017, it has guided the actions of owners, planners and contractors with the application of specific criteria for re-vegetation, water, mobility and sustainable management. In their current design, the adverse effects of parking areas are well known: heat islands, high GHG emissions, lack of alternatives to self-driving, declining biodiversity, etc. Nevertheless, some parking lots owners and managers are now ready to take concrete action to provide an attractive environment for their employees and their customers. The purpose of the talk is to share the Certification, the support process, the management and planning solutions, the criteria, the benefits of the measures, and the visibility offered by the Certification to professionals attending the convention.
