The Emmett Environmental Law & Policy Clinic and the Environmental Policy Initiative released a new report, Certifications for Green Infrastructure Professionals – The Current State, Recommended Best Practices, and What Governments Can Do to Help. The report surveys the current state of Green Infrastructure (GI) professional certification programs, discusses obstacles to the development of widely accepted certifications, recommends best practices for certification program design, and suggests measures that governments can take to promote certification programs. The report was written for various GI stakeholders, including regulators, certifying bodies, customers (e.g., municipalities and private property owners), employers and contractors, and community development and environmental groups.
This report is part of the Clinic and Policy Initiative’s ongoing green infrastructure pilot partnership with EPA, and was authored by Clinic Director Wendy B. Jacobs and Policy Initiative Director Kate Konschnik, with significant contributions from clinic student Ryland Li, JD’15.
