SESSION: What Makes an Effective EMS?
Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) Environmental Management System
Cris B. Liban, D. Env., P.E.., Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) has used its Environmental Management System (EMS)
as the tool to promote i) environmental compliance, ii) enhanced sustainable work spaces, and iii) a spirit of empowerment through
the process of continual improvement. Operational cost savings and value creating ideas has been the cornerstone of LA Metro's
EMS. The agency has embarked on a major re-thinking of EMS implementation not only in how it continues to roll out the PlanDo-Check-Act process agency-wide, but more importantly, to use these principles in the implementation of the rest of its
sustainability programs in the backdrop of an extraordinary transit expansion program.
This talk will outline LACMTA's EMS vision that is unique to the agency but nationally implementable; and the lessons learned that
others can build upon to commence or jumpstart their organization's EMS.
Cris B. Liban, D.Env., P.E. currently oversees the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (LA Metro's) environmental compliance,
environmental remediation, energy and renewable energy management, climate change management, environmental management system, policy
development and implementation, environmental liability reduction, real estate due diligence, and electric vehicle charger programs; while supporting LA
Metro’s $40B transportation expansion program. He is also the project manager of several LA Metro research projects funded by the Federal Transit
Administration, California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District, the California Energy Commission, and the California State Water Resources

Transportation Commissioners, and he also serves on several American Public Transportation (APTA) Working Groups. A licensed professional engineer in
California, Cris has degrees in geology (magna cum laude), civil and environmental engineering, and environmental science and engineering.
