San Francisco Climate Action Plan

The City and County of San Francisco is updating its Climate Action Plan. The San Francisco Climate Action Plan (the Plan) charts a pathway to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 and works toward addressing racial and social equity, public health, economic recovery, resilience, and providing safe and affordable housing to all. To ensure the Plan benefits our whole community, we want to hear from you!

TIMELINE

EQUITY

The Plan aims to address the inter-related crises of climate change and racial and social inequities that have impacted Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities at higher rates. An equity-centered approach to the development and implementation of the Plan is essential to realizing our twin goals of climate action and racial equality. The public engagement process is one of several ways we hope to achieve this, and we need your support to be successful.

BACKGROUND

San Francisco has a long history as a leader in local climate action. The City believes in the science of climate change and takes seriously its responsibility to take meaningful action. Building upon the 2013 Climate Action Plan update and the 2019 Focus 2030 Report, the new Plan will set forth aggressive goals to reduce GHG emissions across six key sectors of our economy and reach the targets of the Paris Agreement.

The draft strategies and supporting actions were co-created with collaborations between city agencies, subject matter experts, and key community stakeholders through various forums and partnership models, all informed by data, policy analysis, research, and decades of experience designing and implementing climate and sustainability programs. Learn more about the Plan and the development process by visiting the Open House Platform.
