Operations and Maintenance: Sustainability Plan Mobile App
Operations and Maintenance: Sustainability Plan.
How does it work?
The focus of this app is to address resource and energy use, pollution generation, climate change and other aspects of sustainability in relation to the agency’s internal operations.
The app identifies traits of sustainable highways and provides information and strategies to assist agencies and organizations to incorporate sustainability best practices into highway and other roadway projects. The App is intended to provide a process to assess transportation projects and to support improvements in the area of sustainability.
Transportation projects and systems serve many different and sometimes competing objectives. “Sustainability” is a concept that enables decision‐makers to make balanced choices based on social, economic, and environmental objectives. With ever diminishing economic and natural resources, using sustainable approaches in transportation will allow us to continue to enhance quality of life and serve the transportation needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
