The SITES rating system aims to generate the sustainability and resiliency of landscapes.
The new projects join 23 others across the country that have achieved certification since June 2010 as SITES pilot projects. These diverse projects represent landscapes of various sizes, locations, types, and costs.
SITES™ is a voluntary, national rating system and set of performance benchmarks that applies to sites with or without buildings.
Since June 2010, pilot projects have been testing the 2009 rating system created by dozens of the country’s leading sustainability experts, scientists, and design professionals. The diverse projects represent various types, sizes, and locations as well as budgets. Fifteen pilot projects have achieved certification to date.
The SITES rating system is focused on the sustainable design, construction, and maintenance of built landscapes.
