EPA Center for Corporate Climate Leadership

About the Climate Leadership Awards Partners

Climate Leadership Awards LogoThe Agency has decided to discontinue the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) involvement with the 2018 Climate Leadership Awards program. This includes canceling the 2018 Climate Leadership Awards as well as EPA’s sponsorship of the Climate Leadership Conference.

The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and The Climate Registry (TCR) were selected by EPA to partner on this national recognition program. C2ES and TCR have a history of collaboration and complementary expertise.

Together they have extensive experience working with national and global organizations on carbon management, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and strategies to integrate climate change into their operations.

Launched in 2011, C2ES is the successor to the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, long recognized in the United States and abroad as an influential and pragmatic voice on climate issues. C2ES, a 501(c)(3) organization, is an unbiased source of information, a trusted convener, and a catalyst for constructive business engagement.
