Care park driving a sustainable future in parking

Ensuring sustainable practices are implemented in all Care Park operations is at the forefront of the company’s ongoing commitment to delivering a positive future to the car parking industry, motorists and society.

Since Care Park began its operations 22 years ago, the company has continued to grow the delivery of practices which implement sustainable solutions within the company and the community Care Park serves.

One of the biggest improvements in creating a more sustainable future has been the introduction of technology and parking payment options created through ticket-less parking.

In each country where Care Park provides parking – Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, the UK and Hungary, upgrades are being implemented within the car parks to ensure a cleaner, safer and more sustainable future.

In addition to introducing ticket-less parking, the biggest roll out of environmentally-friendly initiatives is the installation of LED lighting in Care Park-managed car parks.

Care Park Global General Manager Fedi Chalhoub says, “The car parking industry is a major service provider to motorists. Care Park realises we need to look at ways of ensuring our car parks make a contribution to a more sustainable environment, reducing waste and improving efficiencies.

“We will continue to drive these outcomes as we take on new car parks and refurbish our current ones. It’s a constant process of improvement, not just for us as a company but for all our operations and our clients knowing we are part of the greener movement,” Mr Chalhoub says.
