SITES®

The most comprehensive system for developing sustainable landscapes

Our free SITES Rating System and scorecard provides you with a complete set of prerequisites and credits used for measuring site sustainability.

  • FRAMEWORK

    SITES is a sustainability-focused framework that ushers landscape architects, engineers and others toward practices that protect ecosystems and enhance the mosaic of benefits they continuously provide our communities, such as climate regulation, carbon storage and flood mitigation.

  • process

    SITES-certified landscapes help reduce water demand, filter and reduce stormwater runoff, provide wildlife habitat, reduce energy consumption, improve air quality, improve human health and increase outdoor recreation opportunities. The SITES certification process allows projects to benchmark against performance criteria. The process is performed through SITES Online, which is a simplified tool designed to collect documentation and track projects from start to finish.
