Your Environmental Team

We are asking you to think innovatively with us about how to build an environmental team with the competencies needed to ensure that sustainability opportunities and environmental compliance activities are handled efficiently and effectively.

This module is designed to take you through the thinking process to ensure you have the right expertise on your team and you’re able to communicate those skills to Metro.

Your Environmental Team

Green Construction Policy (GCP)

The GCP aims to improve air quality through the implementation of best practices during planning, construction, operations, and procurement activities.

Metro is changing and we are asking you to change with us. When you understand the requirements of GCP and how it is manifested in project specifications, you will be better positioned to design and plan successful projects.

Noise and Vibration

Metro aims to minimize disruption to the daily life of our community as we build the next Los Angeles. We invite you to join us in reducing the negative effects of construction noise and vibration.

Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs)

Metro’s Stormwater program aims to improve water quality through the implementation of best management practices during planning, construction, and operations activities.

While we work together, transforming Los Angeles into a more livable, sustainable city, we are just as careful about the process as we are about the outcome. We’re asking you to build infrastructure so that the construction process protects the health of our waterways.

Cultural Resources

Cultural resources are natural and created objects, typically more than 50 years old, that provide a window into our past. Our projects at Metro are responsible for the appropriate treatment of these items.

While we build the next Los Angeles, Metro believes in taking exceptional care of historical and cultural artifacts. We’re asking you to think innovatively with us about how to build new infrastructure while protecting and honoring our past.

Air Quality

Metro is partnering with its contractors to transform Los Angeles into a more breathable city.  Planning for the handling, storage, movement and removal of material that could contribute to air quality is of greatest importance. This module works with the Green Construction Policy MECA Module to address what we can do together so we can breathe deeply while we create the next LA.

Impacts of Climate Change on Infrastructure Planning (AB 2800)

At Metro, we build infrastructure to last, and in doing so, we think about what Los Angeles will be like in 20, 50 and 100 years from now.

We know Los Angeles is changing and as it does, we are thinking about how to provide continued service, no matter the circumstance. We are asking you to think differently with us about how to build infrastructure that is resilient to the most likely climate changes expected in our region.

Sustainability Plan

Metro’s Sustainability Plan provides a process for contractors to communicate their sustainability commitments and accomplishments reflected in contract documents and project specifications. Through this program, Metro aims to inspire, work with and support our contractors in incorporating energy and water efficiency, renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions reductions and climate resiliency into all our capital projects.
