Conventional wisdom says parking and sustainability can't easily co-exist. But conventional wisdom is wrong. In fact, the parking industry has found innovative and relatively easy ways to go green and help its customers be more environmentally responsible as well. Participate in this timely webinar to learn how environmental sustainability and a well-designed and operated parking system can work together to meet customer needs, environmental responsibility, and financial goals. The Co-Chairs of IPI's Sustainability Committee will explore specific strategies, options, and resources to help you and your business become more sustainable.
