Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Guide for State DOTs
Publication URL: https://crp.trb.org/nchrpwebresource1/
This guide presents methods for State departments of transportation (DOTs) to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector. The purpose of this guide is to
- Identify and describe tools, methods, and data sources that State DOTs can use to assess GHG emissions, evaluate GHG reduction opportunities, and develop action plans based on current and desired engagement levels.
- Provide self-assessment rubrics to help State DOTs understand how they can address GHGs through all stages of their activities across a range of functional units, including policy, planning and programming, design, environmental review, construction, maintenance, and operations.
- Help State DOTs effectively partner with other state, regional, and local agencies; communicate with stakeholders and the public; report and respond to Federal or State GHG-related requirements, if enacted; support local GHG reduction initiatives; or undertake self-directed actions to reduce GHG emissions.
