Transportation Planning Greenhouse Gas Reduction

MassDOT’s efforts to reduce transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions through capital investments in infrastructure, policy making, and project design

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) commit to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions which contribute to climate change.

The Commonwealth’s Global Warming Solutions Act, signed into law in 2008, set the legally-enforceable goals of reducing GHG emissions by 25 percent below 1990 levels by 2020, and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.

In August 2017, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection updated 310 CMR 60.05: Global Warming Solutions Act Requirements for Transportation. This regulation places obligations on MassDOT and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) to consider GHG emissions in transportation planning.
