Abstract

This paper, starting from the U.S. experience (USGBC LEED) in the building field, through GBC ITALIA, underlines theneed of a specific methodological approach in our country for a roads sustainable design. Therefore, we propose criteria for themethodological approach of a handbook of sustainability. In this guideline required and voluntary project requirements areidentified; for each of these objectives, benefits, standards of reference and its methods of implementation are suggested. Theabove guideline, using detailed development tools (VA, LCA), could provide guidance to the road-designer in the evaluationand selection of strategies to drawing-up project performance standards of sustainability.
