Recognizing that cities play a leading role in producing and potentially reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, San Francisco is actively pursuing citywide strategies to address human-made climate change.
San Francisco is taking action on climate change at the municipal government level. To meet our ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals, City departments track their GHG emissions and participate in an annual climate action program. Department level climate planning and actions are outlined in Departmental Climate Action Plans (DepCAPs).
San Francisco is habitat for 800,000 people – meeting needs for space to work, play, and learn; for food, water, and air; for community with local flora and fauna. SF Environment provides support for urban agriculture and forestry and green buildings, helping residents and businesses harness environmental opportunities.
