San francisco s climate goals in context
San Francisco’s Climate Goals in Context

  • San Francisco Climate Action Plan (2004): 20% reduction in carbon emissions below 1990 levels by 2012

  • Kyoto Protocol (1997): 7% reduction in carbon emissions below 1990 levels by 2012

  • AB 32 (2007): 20% reduction in emissions below 1990 levels by 2020

  • Governor’s Executive Order S-3-05: 80% reduction below 1990 levels by 2050


San Francisco’s Progress

on our Communitywide Carbon Inventory




Climate action goal reduce co 2 to 20 below 1990 levels by 2012
Climate ActionGoal: Reduce CO2 to 20% below 1990 levels by 2012

  • First in nation to certify CO2 emissions through 3rd party (CA Climate Registry)

  • Citywide Climate Action Plan

  • Departmental Climate Action Plans

  • SF Carbon Fund

  • Exploring Carbon Tax

    Currently 7% below

    1990 levels


Climate strategy basics what our climate footprint tells us
Climate Strategy Basics: What our climate footprint tells us

  • Encourage people out of their cars and into other forms of transportation (public transit, biking, walking)

  • Orient new growth near transit and jobs

  • Incentivize use of less polluting cars

  • Use less energy

  • Replace fossil-fueled energy consumption with renewables

  • Send less to landfill

  • Build greener buildings

  • Plant more trees


Clean transportation goal carbon neutral transportation system by 2030
Clean TransportationGoal: Carbon neutral transportation system by 2030

  • 58% Auto, 18% Transit, 6% Bike, 18% Walk

    • Public transit = only 1% of total communitywide emissions

    • Improving MUNI through the Transit Effectiveness Project and new transit developments (i.e. Central Subway)

    • Promoting commuting alternatives through incentives and mandates

    • Expanding the City’s bicycle network and programs

    • Completing and implementing City’s Pedestrian Master Plan

    • Congestion Pricing parking meters

    • “Greening” cars (taxis, rental cars, city fleet)

    • Using biodiesel and alternative fuels

    • Bay Area EV Corridor


100% of public transit is

electric or B20 biodiesel

Largest municipal electric fleet

in country

Largest municipal biodiesel

(B20) fleet in country

43% increase in biking since

2007

Energy Efficiency & Renewable EnergyGoal: Reduce 400,000 tons CO2/year through EE &50 MW in-city renewables by 2012

Energy Efficiency:

  • Municipal energy efficiency

  • Energy Watch program (commercial, multi-tenant buildings)

  • Resilient Homes (single family homes & 2-4 unit buildings)

  • Zero Energy Homes

    Renewable Energy:

  • Municipal hydro, solar, methane

  • GoSolar SF

  • Emerging technologies (ocean power, urban wind, co-gen)

  • San Francisco Sustainable Financing (SF2) program


Municipal electricity is carbon neutral

8.5 MW solar PV (+ 5 MW Sunset project)

3 MW methane

Launching SWH & urban wind programs


Zero waste goal 75 diversion by 2010
Zero WasteGoal: 75% diversion by 2010

  • Curbside recycling/ composting

  • Banned plastic bags in supermarkets & drugstores

  • Banned styrofoam

  • Banned bottled water in City departments

  • Mandatory recycling & composting (effective 10/21/09)

72% diversion rate


Green building
Green Building

  • Toughest green building standards in the country

  • LEED Silver required for municipal buildings and commercial new construction and large retrofits

  • Mandatory recycling of construction debris


Urban forest goal plant maintain 25 000 new trees by 2012
Urban ForestGoal: Plant & maintain 25,000 new trees by 2012

Met goal in 2009

668,000 trees (12% canopy) offsetting 2,500,000 pounds CO2 annually
