PHILADELPHIA – SEPTA will hold an open house on Tuesday, Aug. 30 to discuss ideas for the Authority’s second-generation sustainability plan, SEP-TAINABLE 2020. The open house will be held on Aug. 30 from 12:-2:30 p.m. at SEPTA Headquarters, 1234 Market Street in the Board room on the mezzanine level.
SEPTA’s first-generation Sustainability Program Plan was formally adopted by the SEPTA Board in January 2011. The plan focused on 12 targets to be reached by 2015, and served as the framework for initiatives to advance the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the system and region. It has become a model for collaborative sustainability planning and implementation in the transit industry. For more information about the first-generation plan and its successes, visit: http://www.septa.org/sustain.
It is now time to develop the second-generation plan to set targets for the year 2020. During the open house, riders, residents and other stakeholders will be briefed on the results from the 2015 plan and a proposed planning framework for the 2020 plan. SEPTA will then seek input to further develop environmental sustainability targets and supporting initiatives.
