The Center for Environmental Excellence by AASHTO Communities of Practice (COPs) provide forums for invited professionals to share information, experiences, and best practices on a range of environmental topics related to the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of highway and transit systems. The goal of these Communities is to promote environmental stewardship and encourage innovative approaches to the transportation delivery process.

Individual Community of Practice discussions are facilitated and moderated by Center technical experts. Typically, the communities participate in regular conference calls, exchange emails, share experiences, and provide input to and review of state-of-the practice reports, which are prepared periodically by the CoP facilitator in cooperation with CoP participants.

Community of Practice members participate as individual members of the community and do not necessarily represent their agency’s views or positions. In addition, the discussions of the CoP and the contents of the materials it generates do not necessarily represent the views or positions of AASHTO or the Center for Environmental Excellence.
