The most comprehensive system for developing sustainable landscapes.

SITES is a sustainability-focused framework that ushers landscape architects, engineers and others toward practices that protect ecosystems and enhance the mosaic of benefits they continuously provide our communities, such as climate regulation, carbon storage and flood mitigation. It is the culmination of years of research and development by leading professionals in the fields of soil, water, vegetation, materials and human health.

By providing performance measures rather than prescribing practices, SITES supports the unique conditions of each site, encouraging project teams to be flexible and creative as they develop beautiful, functional and regenerative landscapes.

SITES-certified landscapes help reduce water demand, filter and reduce stormwater runoff, provide wildlife habitat, reduce energy consumption, improve air quality, improve human health and increase outdoor recreation opportunities.

SITES can be applied to a variety of projects types (with or without buildings), including:

Open spaces

Local, state and national parks; botanic gardens; arboretums

Streetscapes and plazas


Retail and office areas; corporate campuses


Neighborhoods or individual yards


Public and private campuses; museums; hospitals



Registering a project is the first step toward earning SITES certification. Contact GBCI Canada customer service to process your registration and certification fee and receive pricing that reflects CaGBC member discounts, in Canadian dollars and with appropriate Canadian taxes applied. Registration and certification fees are not refundable and may change at any time. If your project includes a LEED project, talk to us about bundling discounts.
