MassDOT is proud to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of our GreenDOT Policy. GreenDOT calls for MassDOT to incorporate sustainability into all of its activities, from strategic planning to project design and construction to system operation. The GreenDOT policy initiative includes promoting walking, bicycling, and public transit as one of its central goals as well as reaching the greenhouse gas reduction targets mandated under the Global Warming Solutions Act, signed by Governor Patrick in 2008.
On the anniversary of GreenDOT, MassDOT is launching the draft GreenDOT Implementation Plan. The draft plan includes all MassDOT Divisions and embeds sustainability into our core business by setting fifteen broad goals organized under seven sustainability themes.
Under each goal are actionable tasks and indicators to guide implementation. The draft plan feeds into our performance management efforts within MassDOT, and is based on current MassDOT innovations; leading sustainability policies of the Commonwealth; and national best practices.
We invite you to explore the draft plan and share your thoughts on our GreenDOT website.
