Using SPUR as a Testbed for Decarbonization In San Francisco

Special Program


SPUR urban center

Inspired by the call in San Francisco’s Climate Action Plan for commercial buildings to cease use of fossil fuels by 2035, SPUR has partnered with the Danish Energy Agency and San Francisco Department of the Environment to craft a roadmap for how to decarbonize the SPUR Urban Center, our downtown San Francisco headquarters. The completion of the initial study provided us with some good news: the conversion shouldn’t be overly difficult or expensive, a positive indicator for other local building owners who are exploring the potential of decarbonization. We’ll be joined by the study authors and the San Francisco Department of the Environment to hear what resulted from their analysis Urban Center and why the time to start planning to decarbonize your commercial building is now.
