In 2009, LEED certified square footage in San Francisco increased five-fold, and SF now has more green buildings than New York or Los Angeles.

A report by the San Francisco Existing Commercial Buildings Task Force, which provides "practical solutions to green the city's commercial buildings" has also recently been released.
