Greenroads Awarded for Sustainable Transportation Contributions

Greenroads has been chosen as a White House Champion of Change for Transportation Technology Solutions in recognition for its unique rating system designed to certify sustainable roadway and transportation projects.

May 09, 2013

On Wednesday, the White House and U.S. Department of Transportation hosted a Champions of Change event called “Transportation Technology Solutions for the 21st Century.” Greenroads Executive Director Jeralee Anderson accepted the award along with Champions from across the transportation industry that are providing significant leadership in transportation technology solutions at the local, state or regional level. Champions of Change highlights the stories of people and organizations across the country who are “Building an America to Last” with projects that benefit their communities.

The Greenroads Foundation is the developer of the Greenroads Rating System, a collection of sustainable roadway design and construction best practices that address water, environment, access, community impact, construction practices, and materials. There are 11 project requirements, which must be completed in order for a roadway to be considered a “Greenroad.” There are 47 additional activities that may be voluntarily completed to earn points called “credits,” which are designed to encourage sustainability achievement above and beyond standard practice. After a rigorous review process, the Greenroads Foundation then assigns the roadway project a score, which translates to one of four certification levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Evergreen.
