Sustainability

What does sustainability mean to MnDOT?

Sustainability is often referred to as the intersection of economy, environment, and society, which directly aligns with MnDOT's Vision of a multimodal transportation system that maximizes the health of people, the environment and our economy.

In 2016, MnDOT created a Sustainable Transportation Committee (STSC) to identify sustainability goals and incorporate sustainability into agency decision-making and business practices. The STSC is made up of 16 members of MnDOT’s executive leadership and is championed by the Deputy Commissioner.
