Task Forces - Green Building

The Municipal Green Building Task Force advises SF Environment on matters of policy and reviews municipal projects in design and construction to ensure compliance with San Francisco Environment Code Chapter 7 (LEED Gold certification). The Task Force enables communication about green building issues across City Departments and project teams, and provides an educational forum to increase knowledge and share project related successes and lessons learned.  The Task Force meets monthly on the second Wednesday at 1:30pm in the 4th floor main conference room, 30 Van Ness Ave. Meetings are open to the public.

The Mayor’s Task Force on Existing Commercial Buildings recommended policies, actions, and partnerships to meet local and state goals for greater energy efficiency in existing commercial buildings. Their recommendations informed San Francisco's approach to use building performance data to accelerate energy efficiency improvements in the commercial sector, resulting in the Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance

The Mayor's Task Force on Green Buildings proposed high minimum standards to ensure all new buildings, and many renovations, are built green. These recommendations informed San Francisco Green Building Code - also known as the "Green Building Ordinance."
