SEPTA has reaffirmed its commitment to a sustainable future with its board’s approval recently of a second-generation Sustainability Program Plan for fiscal years 2017-2020.
Entitled “SEP-TAINABLE 2020”, the plan is a core part of SEPTA’s Five-Year Strategic Business Plan. It implements a triple-bottom line approach – economic, social and environmental – to all of SEPTA’s efforts. The plan establishes a goal of “budget neutrality,” requiring projects to meet a rigorous financial standard of paying for themselves through grants, revenue, or cost savings.
