Goals and Outcomes - Green Building
San Francisco’s green building program is charting a course to address the challenges of climate change and resource stewardship while enhancing the economic and social health of the City. San Francisco is leading the way to a sustainable future with innovative green building projects and policies. Home to many of the most skillful and imaginative architects, engineers, planners, and real estate professionals in the world, a growing proportion of municipal, commercial, and residential buildings have received third-party certification for green construction and operations.
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.
