Climate Action Plan Sectors
The Plan is organized into these key sectors.
Natural Gas Ban in New Construction
Enacted the All-Electric New Construction ordinance that went into effect in 2021 to require newly constructed buildings to be energy efficient and all-electric with no on-site carbon emissions. The ordinance is implemented by SF Department of Building Inspections (DBI).
Implement recommendations from ConnectSF and MuniForward plans by investing in transit-only lanes, signal management, queue-jump lanes and other transit priority treatments.
In April 2022, the City completed the Van Ness Improvement Project and opened the city’s first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, which is expected to cut travel times for Muni and Golden Gate Transit by ⅓.
Continue implementing and scale the Kitchen Zero SF pilot program, which reduces food waste by tracking over-purchasing by food generators and redirects otherwise wasted food to communities in need.
SFE completed phase 1 of Cal Recycle grant, resulting in the recovery of 2,899,107 pounds of food which was converted into 2,665,112 meals and 620 tons of CO2 eliminated.
