Sustainability at SEPTA is no longer a program unto itself, but a principle upon which the organization has pursued a culture of continual improvement in management. It is a key component of our SEPTA Forward as well as our regional responsibility.
Today, sustainability is the lens through which SEPTA views its impact on the region and holds itself accountable for ensuring an economically prosperous, socially responsible, and environmentally sustainable future.
SEPTA’s Approach to Sustainability
Our approach to sustainability is “triple-bottom-line” – accounting for the natural environment, healthy communities and workforce, and economic vitality. SEPTA used this three-pronged approach in our last sustainability report: SEP-TAINABLE 2020.
