The Greenroads® Rating System is an easy way to measure and manage sustainability on transportation projects. The Rating System challenges Project Teams to go above and beyond minimum environmental, social and economic practices with an independent, third-party review. It is administered by the 501c3 nonprofit organization, Greenroads International.

Besides that, the rest of the world looks to the U.S. standards while they are busy building 90% of the new transportation infrastructure. Wouldn't it be nice if it were built with the environment in mind this time?
