As mentioned, SFO endeavored to make Terminal 2 as Green as possible. Among the eco-friendly initiatives are preferential parking for electrical and hybrid vehicles, a dual plumbing system that pipes reclaimed water to toilets, and energy efficient lighting. Through these measures, SFO is pledging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 1,667 tons per year.
The green theme continues right down to the passenger level as well. At two stations around the terminal, passengers are invited to refill existing water bottles rather than buying new ones.
