Impark’s commitment to reduced environmental impact is not a recent, reactive measure but dates back to 2004 when we began to make choices about our business practices. Our goals were based on proactive measures that would positively influence overall resource consumption, environmental emissions and recycling. To date, the following key initiatives have been implemented:
In 2009, one of our strategic plan initiatives was to develop the next phase of our GoGreen program. The initiative reached across company employees, clients and customers, exploring and implementing further options and programs on which to maximize our efforts to be proactive and sound stewards of the environment under our influence.
Impark plays an integral role in the development of the Green Parking Council (GPC) programs. GPC is a nonprofit organization providing leadership and oversight for the green conversion of parking facilities to sustainable, environmentally responsible assets. GPC is dedicated to expanding green parking practices through developing certification and credentialing programs, open-sourced standards, professional leadership and educational development and training for organizations and individuals in the parking industry.
GPC works at the intersection of parking, green building, clean technology, renewable energy, smart grid infrastructure, urban planning and sustainable mobility.
