Sustainability Program

The Oregon Department of Transportation is proud to be a leader in the state and the nation in sustainability. ODOT is the first transportation agency to have a comprehensive Sustainability Plan and welcomes the challenge to provide a safe, efficient transportation system that supports economic opportunity and livable communities for Oregonians, while leading efforts to conserve resources and protect and enhance the environment.

Sustainability is a core value that guides our decision-making and which we follow in implementing our mission and goals.

Sustainability Initiatives

Sustainability is an ODOT priority. Our managers and section crews routinely look for ways to utilize sustainable products and fuels, reduce energy and water consumption, and reuse and recycle materials and equipment. Sustainable practices are also incorporated into how ODOT plans, designs and builds transportation programs and projects. Our actions have increased efficiencies, lowered costs, and lessened the impact on the environment.
