How can I find out about SF Environment's recent accomplishments?

Thanks to leadership from Mayor Lee and the Board of Supervisors, and support from San Francisco businesses and residents, we continued to make great strides this year. In addition to being named the Cleantech Capital of North America and a top city for green jobs, San Francisco celebrated an 80 percent waste diversion rate, the highest of any city in North America. We continue to be a leader in the sustainability movement, having successfully banned single use plastic bags, published the nation’s first Pest Prevention by Design Guidelines, while being recognized for the world’s best green building policy. These achievements are made possible through partnerships with our fellow city agencies. The city’s greenhouse gas emissions are 14.5% lower than 1990 levels; another key indicator that our work is having an impact.
