Greenhouse Gas

GHG Transportation Policy/Rulemaking Process

One of the key recommendations stemming from the Governor’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Roadmap is the adoption of a new GHG Pollution Standard for the transportation sector. This rule will be developed via the Air Quality Control Commission process with the parallel development of a CDOT Policy Directive. In addition to having an active role in the rule development, CDOT is also working to ensure this effort is fully informed by transportation stakeholders from around the state.

The specific measure outlined in the 2020 Colorado GHG Emission Reduction Roadmap that will be addressed as part of this process include:

  • GHG pollution standards for transportation plans

The timeline for this effort is to draft a policy directive (and draft reg text) by May 2021 with final approval occurring in August 2021. 

CDOT, in partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Colorado Energy Office (CEO), will hold regional listening sessions to ensure we hear from a range of voices from across the state.
