TRB's varied activities annually draw on more than 5,000 engineers, scientists, and other transportation researchers and practitioners from the public and private sectors and academia, all of whom contribute their expertise in the public interest by participating on TRB committees, panels, and task forces. The program is supported by state transportation departments, the various administrations of the U.S. Department of Transportation and other federal agencies, industry associations, and other organizations and individuals interested in the development of transportation.

TRB Committee ADC60 shares the latest knowledge, expertise, and experience in development and integration of proactive environmental management systems and sustainability concepts into transportation programs in the industry's evolution from a solid and hazardous waste remediation and management approach to a resource efficiency approach. The committee focuses on systems-based solutions and research associated with resource efficiency-and contamination-related technical areas such as toxic and hazardous materials tracking, pollution prevention, product substitution and green designs, recycling and reuse of materials, advances in environmental site assessment technologies and methodologies, and brown fields programs. The literature and results of the research that is being conducted are spread out across different agencies, organization and institutions. In an effort to centralize some of this literature that is available on the web, the following list and links have been compiled. With easier access to this literature, researchers, consultants or regulators can make use of the information provided.
