About Us

The Sustainability Office was established to apply sustainability principles in the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of California’s integrated multimodal transportation system. Our team functions as the hub for the Department’s sustainability initiatives. By guiding collaboration across the Department, the Office aligns sustainable mobility goals, initiatives, targets, and activities between the Director’s Office, Headquarter Divisions, and the 12 Caltrans Districts.

Sustainable Operations and Facilities

To complement efforts to deliver a brighter future for all through a world-class transportation network, Caltrans also works to incorporate and implement sustainability practices into our day-to-day operations. The Sustainability Roadmap has guided Caltrans' sustainability commitments and actions related to the operations and maintenance of statewide buildings and facilities, employee transportation, and project administration.
