In early 2011, EPA requested proposals from organizations to continue to recognize corporate leadership on climate change. In May 2011, a consortium consisting of the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO), the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES), and The Climate Registry (The Registry) was selected by EPA to partner on a new national recognition program.
ACCO, C2ES, and The Registry have a history of collaboration, complementary expertise, and their combined memberships include more than 450 organizations from the public and private sectors.
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.
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 define, develop and support the functions, resources and communities necessary for effective organizational leadership in addressing climate-related risks and opportunities.
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 a 501(c)(3) organization led by Eileen Claussen, who previously led the Pew Center and is a former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.
About The Climate Registry
The Climate Registry envisions the world on a measureable path to sustainability and provides organizations with tools and resources to help them measure, report, verify, and manage their GHG emissions. The Registry also provides governments and organizations with guidance and support to develop and run GHG registries (either voluntary or mandatory); and to build capacity in various components of their carbon management programs, such as training, software platforms, and protocol development. The Registry was established in 2007 as a 501(c)(3) and is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of senior officials from 59 North American states, provinces, and territories.
