State departments of transportation (DOTs) need to effectively partner and collaborate with other agencies, stakeholders, and the public to undertake or support greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction initiatives. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, May 19, 2022 from 11:30 am -1:00 PM Eastern that will summarize and provide an overview of a newly-published guide presenting methods for state DOTs to reduce GHG emissions from the transportation sector. Presenters will identify and describe tools, methods, and data sources to assess emissions, evaluate GHG reduction opportunities, and develop action plans. The webinar will provide an overview of self-assessment rubrics to address GHGs through all stages of activities across a range of functional unit, including policy, planning and programming, design, environmental review, construction, maintenance, and operations. Presenters will also discuss ways to effectively partner and communicate with external agencies, stakeholders, and the public.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committee on Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation. It will feature tools, methods, and data sources from NCHRP WebResource 1:Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Guide for State DOTs.

Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information.
