omb -- 2011 CoolCalifornia application period now open! Posted: 03 Jan 2012 13:56:15
The California Air Resources Board is proud to announce the application period for the 3rd CoolCalifornia Small Business Awards is NOW OPEN. Applications will be accepted from January 3 to February 29, 2012. These awards recognize small businesses in California that took action during 2011 to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, promote climate friendly practices, and integrate the tools on CoolCalifornia.org into their business operations. There are two categories of CoolCalifornia Small Business Awards: • Small Business of the Year Award: Awarded to small businesses in California that took significant actions to reduce their environmental impacts. Winners will have demonstrated measurable reductions of their greenhouse gas emissions and documented the costs and benefits of their actions (energy/water savings; investments in clean/renewable energy; major process/operational improvements; environmentally preferable product purchasing; electric/hybrid vehicle use, etc.). • Climate Leader Award: Awarded to small businesses in California that were proactive in reducing their environmental impacts. Climate Leaders will have described the specific actions taken to achieve the reductions in greenhouse gas emissions (changed lighting; implemented recycling programs; purchased environmentally preferable products; increased weatherization; educated employees, customers, or the public, etc.). An award ceremony and reception will be held in the Spring of 2012 in downtown Sacramento.
