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 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Goals

Achieving these reductions requires us to clean up our energy sources, leave behind dirty fossil fuels and make healthy choices in our daily lives.
