Corporate Social Responsibility in the Landscape Industry - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)
Thursday, September 29, 2022
1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT

Hosted by ASLA's Water Conservation PPN

Landscape architecture strives to design an outdoor experience for the end-user while implementing sustainable measures to reduce or eliminate resource consumption. The more we study, implement, and validate sustainable design, the more we realize the interconnectivity of these elements not only within the site, but with society and the world around us.

Water conservation in irrigation has always been a tenet of sustainability, but it also plays an integral role in heat island reduction, stormwater management, carbon sequestration, and equitable spaces. However, the impacts of manufactured products that we as practitioners specify are often overlooked and influence sustainability beyond the project boundaries as much as the design does within.

Through the context of landscape irrigation, we present an inside look at how a major landscape product manufacturer (Hunter Industries) uses their metric of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the production of irrigation infrastructure and why it matters to specifiers and end-users. We conclude our presentation with a major water purveyor in a drought-stricken region (Southern Nevada Water Authority) discussing why water conservation, sustainability, and CSR in irrigation are important to them.

Over the last decade, the interest in outdoor kitchens has continued to rise. This is reflected by the AIA Home Design Survey continuously naming outdoor kitchens as a key home trend. Outdoor kitchens add value to a home, extend living and entertaining spaces and brings the comfort of the indoors out.

This course identifies current market trends for outdoor kitchens, the scope of products available, decisions to consider before starting a project and design guidelines you need to know to create outdoor kitchens your clients will want to use all year round.
