San Francisco has ambitious clean energy goals: Reducing their carbon footrpint by 80% by 2050 and zero waste by 2020.

How can they get there and what can the rest of us learn from their experience?

As head of San Francisco's Department of the Environment, Melanie Nutter has been on the foreffont of this effort and a leader in developing programs that drive sustainable urban solutions.

Listen to GCR host Joan Michelson's engaging interview with Melanie including about:

  • Financial incentives and grant programs for community groups
  • An app for reporting issues in the city that need repair
  • Collaborating with other cities to find best practices
  • Consumer behavior

And, she proves that you don't have to be an an engineer or a scientist to succeed in this industry!

inspiring for the rest of us...
