“We consider our operation to be the most sustainable parking facility on the planet."
Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 10, 2015
Canopy Airport Parking announced today that it has been designated as a Certified Green Garage by the Green Parking Council.
“This certification by the GPC is a testament to the original vision of Canopy,” said Charles Billera, Canopy Airport Parking’s account manager. “Sustainability is the very reason Canopy exists, so to earn recognition for being a pioneer in this space is a very gratifying achievement.”
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. Canopy Airport Parking is the first airport parking facility, and one of the initial 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.
“We consider our operation to be the most sustainable parking facility on the planet,” continued Billera. “Our LEED certification and the Green Garage Certification certainly validate our belief in the transformative nature of Canopy and our open-source platform for sustainability.”
Canopy Airport Parking, which opened in November of 2010, features geothermal heating and cooling, a wind turbine farm, solar panel fields and other advanced technologies, allowing Canopy to run on 75% less energy than comparable facilities. Canopy is LEED Certified Gold and one of North America’s first Demonstrator Sites of the Green Parking Council. Canopy serves Denver International Airport travelers from Colorado and beyond.
