IPI’s EXPO FOCUSES ON SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS & SERVICES
EXHIBITOR Green Exhibitor Recognition (GER) PROGRAM – What to look for when you’re in Fort Lauderdale!
According to IPI’s 2012 Emerging Trends in Parking survey*, an increasing demand for green and sustainable parking solutions is a leading industry trend. Parking and transportation solutions should balance economic feasibility, public health and welfare, and consideration of environmental effects. This represents a fundamental shift in thinking and reflects the integral role parking professionals play in helping communities achieve sustainability goals.
Many parking facilities today are adopting best practices in sustainability with energy-efficient lighting, solar panels, and innovative water and waste management systems to reduce their carbon footprints. These include implementing recycling systems, using local and recycled materials in construction, and installing renewable energy technology such as photovoltaic, wind power, bio-fuels, and hydrogen fuel cells. An increasing number of parking facilities are also supporting sustainability by accommodating alternative fuel vehicles.
This year, you’ll notice in Fort Lauderdale on the Expo Hall floor, many vendors with the GER Seal, indicating their commitment to sustainable products/services. Be sure to look for this seal throughout the conference & expo as our industry strives to stay committed to the environment.
