Environmental footprint

Q-Park aims to reduce its environmental footprint for all its operations. We express our environmental impact in terms of CO2 emissions per parking space in owned and long-leased facilities.

We manage our environmental impact by reducing energy consumption and by introducing energy-saving technology such as LED lighting with smart switching controls in our parking facilities.

Our lighting systems switch to brighter lighting when movement of cars or pedestrians is detected. In addition, when no cars are present in part of the car park, lighting is automatically dimmed to emergency levels.

We also take simple operational measures to increase the efficiency of our parking facilities. For example, in quiet periods, we temporarily close off parking decks until the number of available spaces on the decks in use reach a certain minimum. We can do this simply by placing traffic cones in the entrance.
