In early 2011, EPA requested proposals from one or more organizations to continue to recognize corporate leadership on climate change. In May 2011, a consortium consisting of The Climate Registry, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES), and the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO) was selected by EPA to partner on a new national recognition program.
The Climate Registry, C2ES, and ACCO have a history of collaboration, complementary expertise, and their combined memberships include more than 450 corporations, as well as numerous other public and private sector organizations.
Together they have extensive experience working with national and global corporations on carbon management, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and strategies to integrate climate change into their operations.
About The Climate Registry
The Climate Registry provides organizations with hands-on, personalized service and resources to help them measure, verify, report and manage their GHG emissions in a publicly transparent and credible way. The Registry was established in 2007 as a 501 (c)(3) by US states and Canadian provinces and today is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of senior officials from 40 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, 13 Canadian provinces and territories, six Mexican states and four Native Sovereign Nations. The Registry has more than 430 members who use The Registry’s services to measure and manage their emissions, as well as share policy information and best practices in carbon management.
About the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions
The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) is an independent non-profit, non-partisan organization promoting strong policy and action to address the twin challenges of energy and climate change. Launched in November 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 is led by Eileen Claussen, who previously led the Pew Center and is the former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs. C2ES is a 501(c)(3) organization that operates under the legal umbrella Strategies for the Global Environment.
About the Association of Climate Change Officers
The Association of Climate Change Officers (“ACCO”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization for executives and officials worldwide in industry, government, academia and the non-profit community. ACCO’s mission is to advance the knowledge and skills of those dedicated to developing and directing climate change strategies in the public and private sectors, and to establish a flexible and robust forum for collaboration between climate change officers.
