Understanding the Sustainability Performance Measurement Framework 15 OVERARCHING COMPONENTS Overarching components of the framework are items that need to be taken into consideration throughout the framework application process, and include aspects such as the engagement of stakeholders, partners, and external agencies. AUXILIARY COMPONENTS Auxiliary components are related but optional components that supplement the framework application process but are not central to it. These include items such as (1) developing a working definition of sustainability, (2) organizational sustainability initiatives that are independent of a transportation agency's functions (e.g., energy efficient buildings, recycling of office waste), and (3) organizational application of broader transportation sustainability performance measures (such as carpooling or ridesharing) specifically for the agency's employees.
