EPA and Others Sponsor New National Climate Awards Program

May 2011 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), along with The Climate Registry, Pew Center on Global Climate Change, and the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO) will jointly sponsor a new national awards program to recognize exemplary corporate, organizational and individual leadership in response to climate change. The awards program will showcase voluntary action on climate and energy, recognizing innovative and sustained leadership in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions management and emissions reductions.

An event to honor award recipients will be held in early 2012. Specific award categories include:

  • Sustained Excellence in Public Reporting - Recognizing companies that continually raise the bar in the area of public disclosure of GHG emissions data. This would include regular public reporting and verification of corporate GHG inventories, GHG goal setting and achievement of GHG emissions reductions.
  • Supply Chain Leadership - Recognizing companies that have their own comprehensive GHG inventories and emissions reduction goals and can demonstrate that they are at the leading edge of managing carbon in their supply chain.
  • Organizational Leadership - Recognizing companies that have "mainstreamed" climate change across their operations and can demonstrate that they factor climate change into their business decisions.
  • Individual Leadership - Recognizing individuals exemplifying extraordinary leadership in leading their organizations' response to climate change and/or affecting the responses of other organizations.

News Release - The Climate Registry, Pew Center on Global Climate Change and the Association of Climate Change Officers Announce Partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to Jointly Administer New National Climate Awards Program
