From the Introduction: "Pursuant to Section 211 of Executive Order (E.O.) 14008, 'Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad' and Council on Environmental Quality's (CEQ) Implementing Instructions, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT or Department) has developed and submitted this Climate Action Plan (Plan). This Plan builds from the previous Climate Action Plans prepared in 2012 and 2014, respectfully. The 2012 Action Plan focused on the climate change's impacts to DOT's critical mission activities--safety, state of good repair and federally owned building's environmental sustainability. The 2014 Climate Adaptation Plan provided updates on DOT's accomplishments to date and Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 and FY2014 commitments. This Plan follows the CEQ Instructions for Preparing Draft Climate Action Plans under E.O. 14008 and focuses on climate adaptation and resilience across agency programs and the management of Federal procurement, real property, public lands and waters, and financial programs. While the Department is engaged in a wide variety of activities related to reducing transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions, this Plan focuses on actions to bolster adaptation and increase resilience."
