Reduce environmental impacts from the transportation system with emphasis on supporting a statewide reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to achieve 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.

Our Performance Measure Targets are:

1. By 2020, achieve 15% reduction (3% per year) of statewide per capita VMT relative to 2010 levels reported by District.

  •    15% reduction (from 2010 levels) of GHG to achieve 1990 levels by 2020.
  •    85% reduction (from 2000 levels) in diesel particulate matter emissions statewide by 2020.
  •    80% reduction (from 2010 levels) in NOx emissions in South Coast Air Basin by 2023.

2. By 2020, reduce Caltrans’ internal operational pollutants by District from 2010 levels (from planning, project delivery, construction, operations, maintenance, equipment, and buildings) including:

  •    15% reduction by 2015 and 20% reduction by 2020 of Caltrans' GHG emmissions per EO-B-18-12.
  •    10% reduction in water pollutants.

3. By 2020, 85% reduction (from 2000 levels) in diesel particulate matter emissions statewide.

4.  By 2020, 85% reduction (from 2010) levels in NOx emmissions in South Coast Air Basin.

5. By 2020, increase by 20% (5% per year) incorporating green infrastructure into transportation projects relative to 2010 levels.
