iParks Webinar: The Sustainable Sites Initiative

Now Available ON DEMAND

The Sustainable Sites Initiative was created to promote sustainable land development and management practices that can apply to sites with and without buildings, including Research Parks of any shape and size.  Join iParks Webinar: The Sustainable Sites Initiative to explore a form of sustainability that Communities of Innovation can exemplify all over the world.

While standards exist for sustainable structures—“green buildings”—there are no comprehensive guidelines and performance benchmarks for those who want to create and measure sustainable landscapes.  The Sustainable Sites Initiative will change that.  Join this iParks Webinar to see how The Sustainable Sites Initiative can impact your park and learn:

  • About the Sustainable Sites Initiative and who is supporting the movement
  • How it impacts the LEED movement, and
  • Why it matters to Research Parks

About the Sustainable Sites Initiative

The Sustainable Sites guidelines offer tools for those who design, construct, operate, and maintain landscapes of all sizes. Modeled after the LEED®(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System of the U.S. Green Building Council, the new rating system gives credits for the sustainable use of water, the conservation of soils, wise choices of vegetation and materials, and design that supports human health and well-being.
