Bay Area Cities, classified as San Francisco/Oakland/Hayward, and San Jose/Sunnyvale/Santa Clara rank #2, and #6, respectively in a new index of the most populous metro areas based on their overall climate impact by StreetLight Data.

This means the top ten metropolitan areas are the most carbon-friendly in the nation. 

Here are the top 10:

2. San Francisco/Oakland/Hayward — California

3. Madison — Wisconsin

4. Philadelphia/Camden/Wilmington — Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware/Maryland

5. Boston/Cambridge/Newton — Massachusetts/New Hampshire

6. San Jose/Sunnyvale/Santa Clara — California

7. Des Moines/West Des Moines — Iowa

8. Lancaster — Pennsylvania

9. New Haven/Milford — Connecticut

10. Buffalo/Cheektowaga/Niagara Falls — New York

Cities like New York, San Francisco and Boston aren't known for being eco-friendly. However, factors such as population density and efficient public transportation help residents be closer to each other, as well as closer to the places where they work and play. This in turn encourages eco-friendly practices such as walking and biking.

StreetLight Data is a company focused on transportation analytics, and it uses machine learning and industry-related insight to shed light on how our roadways work.  The six factors used to determine the rankings were chosen because each has an impact on climate. To calculate density, geographic area was divided by population. Transit ridership was determined using the American Public Transportation Association’s per-capita ridership ratings.
