Leaner Greener CoverMassDOT’s GreenDOT Policy and Implementation Plan were highlighted in this year’s “Leaner and Greener: Sustainability at Work in Transportation” report by AASHTO, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.

In 2001, AASHTO and the Federal Highway Administration created the Center for Environmental Excellence to promote environmental stewardship and encourage innovative ways to streamline the transportation project delivery process.

The Leaner and Greener Report showcases the steps transportation agencies including MassDOT are taking to speed up project delivery and cut costs while protecting and even improving environmental resources.

AASHTO categorized MassDOT’s Plan as “setting a leaner and greener leadership vision” and pointing to the plan as a model.
