Climate Leadership Awards

The 2018 Climate Leadership Awards application period opened on June 29 and will close on October 16, 2017.

Award winners will be publicly recognized during the seventh annual Climate Leadership Conference, February 28 to March 2, 2018, in Denver, CO.

The Climate Leadership Awards (CLA) are co-sponsored by the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and The Climate Registry (TCR).

The Climate Leadership Awards is a national awards program that recognizes and incentivizes exemplary corporate, organizational, and individual leadership in response to climate change. In February 2012, the first-ever awards were presented to one individual and 20 organizations from across the U.S. who are leading the way in the management and reduction of GHG emissions—both in internal operations and throughout the supply chain. Now in its seventh year, the program has honored more than 115 recipients; the awards continue to highlight leadership in addressing climate change by reducing carbon pollution and implementing adaptation planning initiatives.
