Our Mission

The San Francisco Department of the Environment (SF Environment) creates visionary policies and innovative programs that promote social equity, protect human health, and lead the way toward a sustainable future. We put our mission into action by mobilizing communities and providing the resources needed to safeguard our homes, our city, and ultimately our planet.

Green Building

Through planning, development, and green building construction efforts, San Franciscans are aligning the built environment with the natural world. We’re minimizing energy consumption and resource depletion, and improving air and water quality by supporting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification programs and other green building initiatives.
