Parking presents a unique sustainability
opportunity. There are more than 1.2 billion
motorized vehicles in the world today, and
that number is expected to double by 2030.
Buildings and transportation are the two
biggest drivers of CO2 emissions globally.
Parking asset investors, owners and
consumers are seeking greener solutions.
Carbon emissions, pollution and fossil fuel consumption can be significantly reduced by smart operation of our parking operations.
