What sustainability means to MnDOT
Sustainability can be defined as the intersection of economy, environment and society. This aligns with the MnDOT Vision of a multimodal transportation system that maximizes the health of people, the environment and our economy. MnDOT's originating statute and the Next Generation Energy Act also set sustainability goals that guide our work.
The STAC was established in 2020 to provide recommendations to MnDOT to reduce carbon pollution from transportation.
