Very simply, GreenLITES the Green Leadership in Transportation Environmental Sustainability, is a transportation environmental sustainability rating system. Conceived and implemented by New York State DOT, NYSDOT, this program recognizes transportation project designs, operations and maintenance practices.
GreenLITES is a self-certification program that distinguishes transportation projects and operations based on the extent to which they incorporate sustainable choices. This is primarily an internal management program for NYSDOT to measure our performance, recognize good practices, and identify where we need to improve. It also provides the Department with a way to demonstrate to the public how we are advancing sustainable practices. NYSDOT project designs and operations are evaluated for sustainable practices and based on the total credits received, an appropriate certification level is assigned. The rating system recognizes varying certification levels, with the highest level going to designs and operational groups that clearly advance the state of sustainable transportation solutions.
