Who We Are – The San Francisco Department of the Environment (SF Environment) advances climate protection and enhances quality of life for all San Franciscans. SF Environment is a department within the City and County of San Francisco, a local government committed to innovation, leadership and collaboration in creating environmental change. SF Environment is recognized worldwide for its environmental policies and programs, which center on achieving zero waste, reducing toxic chemical hazards, advancing environmental justice, promoting low-carbon transportation modes, expanding clean energy infrastructure, greening our built environment and protecting our urban forest. We’re a passionate, mission-driven team that values credibility , collaboration, impact, innovation and equity. SF Environment is also a great place to work, offering an attractive benefits package that includes healthcare and retirement.
SF Environment Racial Equity Statement – For over 20 years, SF Environment has worked with San Francisco’s Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities to mitigate environmental burdens, increase accessibility of environmental programs and benefits, engage community members, and improve health outcomes. BIPOC communities are disproportionately exposed to environmental stressors that include air and soil pollution, illegal dumping of toxics and other materials, industrial land uses and transportation impacts. They are more likely to live in housing conditions with limited access to green space and where poor indoor air quality from pests, mold, and the use of toxic products contributes to the prevalence of asthma and other health disparities. They are more likely to be employed in areas with high levels of exposure to toxics. Now, they are the first communities feeling the impacts of climate change, with the fewest resources to respond. SF Environment has a longstanding commitment to the principles of environmental justice, whereby communities most impacted by environmental stressors and climate change are prioritized and the long-time work of community leaders is recognized and supported. We are committed to uplifting the contributions of local environmental leaders of diverse racial backgrounds and ensuring that racial equity is the cornerstone of all of our programs, policies, and services.
As the Clean Transportation Coordinator, you will support two dynamic programs. First, you will work with the US Department of Energy and a large group of fleet stakeholders to administer and implement the San Francisco Clean Cities Coalition program. Second, you will collaborate with the California Energy Commission and community-based organizations to administer and implement a grant which funds the study and deployment of up to fifty (50) electric bicycles for app-based delivery workers by January, 2024.
In addition to working on these two programs, you will support the Clean Transportation Team with the implementation of the City-wide Electric Vehicle (EV) Roadmap. Support functions include: creating local policies and assessing their potential benefits, costs, and impacts; writing applications for state and federal grants to expand the public charging network and use of electric bicycles for personal and commercial purposes; and represent SF Environment in various clean mobility forums, groups, councils and other partners. You may also supervise staff, interns or volunteers as the need may arise.
