Climate Goals

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.
