Climate Leadership Awards

The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions congratulates the 15 organizations and two individuals honored for their exemplary leadership in addressing climate change at the 2014 Climate Leadership Awards. The national awards program honors corporate, organizational, and individual leadership in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in internal operations and the supply chain. Winners represent a wide array of industries, including construction, finance, defense, transportation, retail, energy and technology.

"These companies, organizations, and individuals demonstrate that we can save energy, reduce emissions, and take decisive steps toward a low-carbon future," said C2ES President Eileen Claussen. "We hope their accomplishments will serve as an example for others to follow.”
