New York City Transit: Why Envision?

Many public entities responsible for the design and construction of infrastructure projects have established ways to perform a thorough environmental review to ensure compliance. However, sustainability considerations have little regulatory representation and as a result, alternate ways of assessing the quality of organizational performance are often sought. Some available frameworks seek to completely change the way Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) New York City Transit (NYCT) do business; others can complement and seamlessly augment existing processes to ensure greater success of integration. This paper discusses how MTA NYCT Capital Program Management (CPM) has been approaching environmental and sustainability considerations historically and how the Envision rating system for sustainable infrastructure is being incorporated into CPM’s regular procedures.
