San Francisco is actively addressing the causes of human-made climate change. Consistent with the scientific community’s recommendations for measures needed to stabilize our climate system, we are committed to ambitious reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions.
Community Wide Emissions Reduction Goals
- 20% reduction below 1990 levels by 2012
- 25% by 2017
- 40% by 2025
- 80% by 2050
Achieving these reductions requires us to clean up our energy sources, leave behind dirty fossil fuels and make healthy choices in our daily lives.
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.
