“Make long-lasting, smart mobility decisions that improve the environment, support a vibrant economy, and build communities, not sprawl.”

Caltrans' Sustainability Policy

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) embraces and is committed to its role in improving the environment, the economy, and social equity for all Californians. Caltrans strives to improve Californians' quality of life without compromising that of future generations. Caltrans meets this commitment by applying sustainability principles in the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of California's integrated multimodal transportation system.

Sustainability: Preserve or enhance California's people, planet, and prosperity to improve the quality of life by meeting the present generation needs without compromising future generation's ability to meet their own needs.

Caltrans fosters a sustainability culture committed to promoting the people, planet, and prosperity and to support California's sustainability goals. We apply sustainability principles by making efficient, risk-based, balanced decisions through the use of best practices.
