The Sustainable Santa Fe Commission (SSFC) is a volunteer citizen advisory commission charged with advising Santa Fe’s Governing Body on sustainability-related programs, projects and policies. In 2015 the SSFC was given the task of supporting Santa Fe’s Renewable Energy Plan with the development of a 25-year Sustainability Plan for Santa Fe.
The Renewable Energy Plan addresses renewable energy, energy efficiency, land use, water use, carbon emission reduction efforts, and other areas of sustainability. Santa Fe’s goal is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040. For more information about SSFC’s 25-year plan visit http://www.sustainablesantafe2040.com.
SSFC advises the City of Santa Fe on the programs, policies and projects that will help to improve the City’s environment, ensure its long-term sustainability and protect the health and wellbeing of its people. SSFC holds monthly meetings in the City of Santa Fe Railyard Offices (500 Market Street, entrance next to REI). For more information about SSFC visit http://www.santafenm.gov/sustainable_santa_fe.
