American Society of Landscape Architects Unveils Sustainable Event Impact Assessment
The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is reinforcing its commitment to sustainability with the release of their first Sustainable Event Impact Assessment. This comprehensive analysis examined the environmental and social impacts of ASLA's 2022 Conference on Landscape Architecture in San Francisco.
The assessment provides a crucial baseline for measuring energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste generation. ASLA aims to use this data to improve their environmental and social contributions to each annual conference. The report also highlighted the steps ASLA has already taken, such as making the conference more accessible, donating expo materials to Habitat for Humanity, and actively supporting host communities. The ASLA intends to use the data from this report in planning for their upcoming 2023 Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
