San Francisco’s Zero Emission Building Task Force

The Zero Emission Building Taskforce was convened at the direction of Mayor Breed. The purpose of the Taskforce is to Eliminate fossil fuel use in both electricity generation and in buildings l to achieve San Francisco’s emissions-reduction goals; electrification is the transition of services that rely on fossil fuels to efficient use of renewable electricity. Zero Emission Building Taskforce activities included a mixture of workshops to surface ideas and solicit input broadly and working meetings where taskforce participants contributed ideas, posed questions, and formulated recommendations. The resulting recommendations informed the Climate Action Plan that will be completed in 2021.
