Our direct involvement with the Green Parking Council ultimately helps position our assets for long term environmental, social and economic vitality for ourselves, our clients and our stakeholders.
Hartford, Connecticut (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
Propark America announced today that it has been awarded Certified Green Garage designations at three parking assets under its management by the Green Parking Council.
“Our company has always been at the leading forefront of environmental and socially aware initiatives,” said Joe Coppola, Propark’s managing partner. “Sustainability is a core value that resonates through every aspect of our operational philosophy and helps to define who we are.”
Launched in 2015, Green Garage Certification recognizes parking facility management practices that maximize performance while minimizing waste. Many of these programs encourage mobility options, sustainable technology and efficient structure design. Sustainable garages frequently employ energy-efficient lighting and ventilation systems, guidance systems that help drivers find parking faster, idle-reduction technologies, electric vehicle fueling stations, car sharing, bicycle parking, and storm water management practices.
The Charles Square Garage (Cambridge, Massachusetts) and Canopy Airport Parking (Commerce City, Colorado) were among the inaugural seven parking garages in the country to achieve this designation at the International Parking Institute’s annual Conference and Exposition, which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Also achieving Certified Green Garage status was BG Group Place (Houston, Texas), managed by Winpark, the parking management company acquired by Propark in 2014.
“Parking and mobility help connect urban centers to form the foundation of sustainable living in the cities of the future,” continued Coppola. “Our direct involvement with the Green Parking Council ultimately helps position our assets for long term environmental, social and economic vitality for ourselves, our clients and our stakeholders. Parking, planet, profit is truly the new triple bottom line in our industry and we want to continue to pioneer and champion that philosophy.”
