Climate Leadership Awards

The Climate Leadership Awards is a national awards program that recognizes and incentivizes exemplary corporate, organizational, and individual leadership in response to climate change.

By showcasing and recognizing voluntary action on climate and energy, co-sponsors C2ES and TCR are sending a strong signal that innovative and sustainable leadership in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing resilience are critical to addressing climate change.

Since 2012, more than 115 recipients have been recognized for leadership in addressing climate change by reducing carbon emissions in their internal operations and throughout the supply chain, and implementing adaptation planning initiatives.
