We call it the “Green Book” for short, but you can now pre-order from IPI the 176-page Sustainable Parking Design and Management: A Practitioner’s Handbook as an ebook or limited-edition hardcover at pre-release discounted prices.
The idea for this book began with Tim Haahs, PE, AIA, of Timothy Haahs and Associates, Inc., long time IPI Board member and the consummate parking professional, who also sat on the National Parking Association’s (NPA) Consultants Council. Tim envisioned this book as a joint industry project, and IPI and NPA have worked together for the past three years to bring it to publication.
More about the book, including a listing of chapters, is available at parking.org/greenbook.
I know “it takes a village” is a cliché, but this book really is the result of many talented people devoting a lot of time to the effort, no one more than book editor and IPI Board member Rachel Yoka, LEED AP BD+C, CNU-A. She deserves accolades and gratitude from everyone in the parking industry for seeing this project through.
The book’s chapter authors and peer reviewers also deserve thanks for their important contributions:

Featured in the book are more than 20 case studies of facilities that have incorporated sustainable elements and which provide vital information and lessons learned.
IPI’s mission is to advance the parking profession. In our education and outreach efforts we focus on this triad: Technology. Customer Service. Sustainability.
This book is a milestone for our industry. I encourage you to learn from and delight in its pages.
A heads-up: The hardcover version of Sustainable Parking Design and Management: A Practitioner’s Handbook will be a limited-edition. Both the hardcover and ebook may be pre-ordered now at introductory (and IPI member discounted) prices at parking.org/greenbook.
It’s an exciting day for the parking industry!
