The Sustainable Sites Initiative's aim in this document is to describe benchmarks that are based on sustainable outcomes rather than on strict prescriptions and specific technology, thereby encouraging innovation, inspiring a change in thinking, and providing flexibility. This document encompasses a series of prerequisites and credits for measuring site sustainability. Benchmarks outlined under prerequisites are required and must be met in order for a site to participate in this voluntary program.
Benchmarks outlined under credits are optional, but a certain number of them must be attained for a project to achieve eventual recognition as a Sustainable Site.
