About the Awards

Organizational Leadership Award

IBM

Headquartered in New York with more than 425,000 employees worldwide, IBM is a global business delivering innovative IT products, services, and systems to clients in all sectors of the economy. IBM has demonstrated outstanding leadership in addressing climate change internally and through engaging its clients, peers, and value chain.

Having reduced or avoided GHG emissions by an amount equivalent to 40% of its 1990 emissions between 1990 and 2005, IBM set a second generation goal to reduce the GHG emissions associated with its energy use by 12% between 2005 and 2012. By 2010, IBM had achieved a reduction of 16.7%, as well as an energy conservation rate of 5.7% (surpassing its goal of 3.5%). These results were achieved as a result of establishing global best practices and detailed checklists for IBM's lighting, HVAC, Central Utility Plants, compressed air, data center and IT systems, cafeterias, and office systems. Also in 2010, IBM established new corporate responsibility and environmental management requirements for its more than 27,000 first tier suppliers in over 90 countries. Implementation of these requirements within a specified time period is a condition of doing business with IBM.

IBM was the first semiconductor manufacturer to publicly commit to a numerical perfluorocompound (PFC) emissions reduction target in 1998, and has reduced emissions through chemical substitution, process optimization and abatement while more than doubling production. As a result, the company surpassed its second generation goal to reduce PFC emissions by 25% by 2010 against the 1995 baseline, achieving a reduction of 36.5%.

IBM's commitment to responding to climate change is also seen in its education and training programs for employees - including environmental policy and energy management technical training - and in its work with governments, NGOs and industry to demonstrate and promote climate change solutions. The company is committed to its clients' success, using its research, IT and services expertise, and broad portfolio of innovative offerings to enable clients and society to address their climate change challenges.

SDG&E's business strategy is influenced by climate change, and over the last 20 years the company has provided millions of dollars in rebates and incentives to encourage consumers and businesses to implement clean energy programs. This has resulted in net savings for customers of over $900 million.

SDG&E has already exceeded the 25 percent by 2016 renewable energy requirement established by the California Renewables Portfolio Standard, which requires one-­‐third of SDG&E's electricity sales to be renewable energy by 2020. SDG&E is leading the state in acquisitions of renewable energy and has increased the percent of retail sales of renewable energy from less than 1 percent in 2002 to nearly 12 percent in 2010. Between January-August 2011, SDG&E executed 14 renewable contracts to add 1,250 MW of capacity to its portfolio.

Through energy efficiency programs implemented since 2010, SDG&E has saved enough electricity to power 132,334 homes, enough peak power to avoid building three 50MW peaker plants, and enough natural gas to supply 20,000 homes for a year - in addition to achieving a net savings of $118 million.

For its vehicle fleet, the company set a goal to reduce emissions by 15 percent by 2012 compared to a 2007 baseline; thus far, it has reduced fleet vehicle emissions by nearly 10 percent and remains on track to reduce emissions 15 percent by 2012.

SDG&E has developed several partnerships to raise awareness and educate the community on energy, conservation, and efficiency. Partnerships such as Smart City San Diego and the Local Government Partnerships program broaden support for renewable energy generation. They also help local governments assess the energy efficiency opportunities for facilities, policies, operations, public services, transportation, and infrastructure. Their recently completed Energy Innovation Center (EIC) brings together local residential and business customers to demonstrate new green technologies and learn about energy efficiency and climate change programs.

Supply Chain Leadership Award

Port of Los Angeles

Founded in 1907 and located on California's San Pedro Bay, the Port of Los Angeles occupies 7,500 acres of land and water along 43 miles of waterfront. The Port has established itself as an international leader in GHG reduction advocacy, taking steps to reduce its own emissions, its tenants' emissions, and helping ports around the world to address their carbon footprints.

The Port's supply chain leadership is evident in its tenant lease requirements, established in 2006, which require all new and renewed leases to incorporate applicable environmental requirements. These include air emission controls; water, stormwater, and sediment quality; and energy audits on terminal buildings to identify energy savings. In addition, the Port not only prepares annual GHG inventories for its own emissions, but also conducts annual "expanded" reports on Scope 3 sources, including emissions for ships, trucks, and trains bound to and from Port terminals. Internationally, the Port played an integral role in the development of the collaborative World Ports Climate Initiative (WPCI) and the resulting free online resources: the Greenhouse Gas Toolbox, Carbon Footprinting Guide for Ports and Carbon Calculator. The WPCI was formally launched at the Los Angeles Symposium, which was hosted by the Port of Los Angeles and the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) Port Environment Committee in November 2008.

In terms of its own operation, the Port has prepared its own Climate Action Plan with a goal of reducing GHG emissions 35 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. Actions taken in support of this goal include purchasing 25 percent of the Port's municipal power from renewable energy sources, committing to construct a total of 10 megawatts of solar energy on Port facilities, creating over 50 acres of open space through redevelopment of the LA Waterfront, and the adoption of a Port-wide Green Purchasing Policy and Green Building Policy.
