SITES - THE MOST COMPLETE SYSTEM FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN LANDSCAPE
SITES, a program that offers a systematic and comprehensive classification system, designed to define sustainable sites, measure their performance and ultimately raise the value of parks and garden spaces.
SITES is based on the understanding that land is a crucial component of the built environment and can be planned, designed, developed and maintained to protect and improve the benefits derived from healthy green spaces.
Used by landscape professionals, architects, designers, engineers, and architects, SITES provides tools for those responsible for the development and management of landscaping and can address increasingly urgent issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and depletion of resources.
The SITES Classification System can be applied to development projects located in sites with or without buildings, including: open spaces, streets and squares, whether for commercial, industrial, residential, educational, institutional, infrastructure, or government use.
The parks certified by SITES will reduce water demand, filter and reduce storm water runoff, provide wildlife habitat, while collaborating to reduce energy consumption, improve air quality, improve human health and Increase outdoor recreation opportunities.
