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

 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;
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.
