Road transportation and pavement infrastructure create an environmental burden not only proximal to the roadway but at regional and global scales. Life cycle assessment can identify opportunities to reduce the environmental burden of pavements. But it does so throughout the entire product supply chain: from raw materials extraction, to cement and asphalt production, to transportation of those and other materials, to the use phase, and finally to the recycling or disposal at the end of the pavement's useful service life. Matching these opportunities throughout the supply chain with the supply chain actors at each phase, with policy levers to implement change, and with environmental technologies can all spur innovation to move the industry toward more sustainable practices.
