Parking lies at the intersection of the two biggest drivers of CO2 emissions globally, buildings and transportation. Evolving technologies, new business opportunities and a growing consciousness regarding environmental responsibility have positioned parking to drive change in both of these areas. Parksmart, the world’s only rating system designed to advance mobility through smarter parking structure design and operation, provides garages with a pathway to harness this opportunity and redefine parking as a transformative force for sustainable mobility in our cities, campuses, entertainment venues and elsewhere.
This webinar will address how parking structure owners and operators can utilize Parksmart to enhance bottom lines, embrace environmental responsibility and address emerging trends within the parking and transportation industries.
- Highlight emerging trends in the parking and transportation industries.
- Describe the value of sustainability in parking.
- Provide an overview of the Parksmart rating system.
