Cambridge Systematics is a for-profit company which provides policy and planning solutions, objective analysis, and technology applications, helping clients meet future transportation needs while improving the performance of existing infrastructure and operations. They provide a Transportation Climate Change Policy and Planning service and have used this service for extensive policy work with Federal and state agencies. This service integrates climate change considerations into agencies’ strategic policy development – addressing GHG mitigation as well as preparing for the effects of climate change. Critical Cambridge Systematics analysis on these issues will inform upcoming national legislation, such as authorization of the next surface transportation bill as well as potential energy legislation, and can assist transportation agencies as they develop effective state and local policies. Cambridge Systematics also supported the creation and implementation of the U.S. DOT Center for Climate Change and Environmental Forecasting (in 1999). They coordinated the planning process and drafted the Center’s first strategic plan, identifying research priorities in GHG emissions reduction, climate impacts and adaptation measures.
