Growing San Francisco's Green Economy
SF Environment is expanding the green economy and promoting green jobs through our environmental policies and programs.
Our region leads the nation in developing the innovative greentech and cleantech industries, and San Francisco is at the forefront of this revolution.
The City’s support of job growth in the sustainability sector will transform our local economy, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, help us meet our greenhouse gas reduction targets and provide healthier places to live and work. Workers across the City—from Bayview Hunters Point to the Financial District—will benefit from new jobs utilizing a range of skills and education levels.
Driving Demand in the Green Economy
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.
