A growing consciousness, evolving technology, and new business opportunities are expanding parking’s role as a transformative force for sustainable mobility in our cities, campuses, entertainment venues and elsewhere. Enter Parksmart—formerly Green Garage Certification—the world’s only rating system designed to advance sustainable mobility through smarter parking structure design and operation. Developed by industry experts, the Parksmart framework guides projects toward innovative, solutions-oriented strategies.

Parksmart garages offer significant benefits for drivers, tenants, building owners, and property managers. Parksmart creates opportunities for parking structures to lower their energy usage through lighting, ventilation, controls and commissioning measures, reducing operational costs up to 25 percent compared to the national average.

Parksmart certification recognizes parking structures that:

Reduce their environmental impact

Increase their energy efficiency and performance

Manage parking spaces efficiently

Reduce their environmental impact

Increase their energy efficiency and performance

Parksmart and LEED

Parksmart offers synergies with LEED, providing more ways for you to showcase your parking structure’s sustainable features. Projects that have achieved LEED credits under the BD+C and O+M rating systems may be able to apply some of these credits towards a Parksmart certification, and vice versa.

Discover how you can leverage these synergies and be recognized for your sustainability efforts.
