Climate change is one the greatest threats to our collective health and well-being. One of the first cities in the nation to pledge action on climate, San Francisco is more committed than ever to working with our diverse communities, other local governments, states, institutions and businesses, both nationally and internationally, to fight against climate change. 

San Francisco is proof that strong action is good for the planet and for the economy. Since 1990, San Francisco has reduced citywide emissions 48 percent, while the population has grown 21 percent and the local economy 199 percent. To learn more about how San Francisco aims to fight climate change, read the San Francisco Climate Action Plan.
