Sustainability and Decarbonization
Federal, State, and regional agencies depend on us to bring sustainable energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation considerations into policy, planning, and decision-making. Our data sources and methods allow robust analysis of energy and GHG impacts of transportation projects, policies, and programs.
We are a recognized leader in assessing GHG mitigation strategy effectiveness, with over 15 years of high-profile national and state efforts, including developing NCHRP WebResource 1, Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Guide for State DOTs (2022), leading and supporting Carbon Reduction Strategies in a half dozen states, and helping states integrate emissions reduction into all aspects of transportation planning, programming, and performance.
Our expertise spans emissions inventory development, air quality conformity analysis, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) project evaluation, carbon reduction and climate action plans, freight emission reductions, market-based measures, electrification and alternative fuels, cost-effectiveness analyses, grant application support, and project evaluation and monitoring.
We have experience at the federal, state, and local levels and can help you with:
