Learn How Greenroads Works

Our Project Rating Program challenges teams to go above and beyond minimum environmental, social and economic practices by documenting performance and participating in an independent, third-party review.

Greenroads Projects are the missing links for the world's most sustainable cities, or those wishing to become greener and are thinking about a sustainable future.

Jeralee shares a bit about what one project did to save money by thinking a bit more about the future during the design of the road.

Why Green Transportation Matters

Transportation projects cost government agencies billions of dollars every year building and maintaining infrastructure. Those are real, hard tax dollars at work in the same, tired way they have been for the last several decades.

It is time for a change.

Research shows that not only is sustainability easy to do it is now a necessity and a public mandate. Besides that, the rest of the world looks to the U.S. standards while they are busy building 90% of the world's new transportation infrastructure. Wouldn't it be nice if it were built with the planet, people and your tax dollars in mind this time?

At the end of the day, we cannot manage what we do not measure. More importantly, we cannot communicate what it is that we are doing for sustainability in a simple and meaningful way. So, what are you going to do on your Project today that makes a difference tomorrow?
