Small Business Awards

The CoolCalifornia Small Business Awards Program recognizes leadership and innovation among small businesses that take action to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, promote climate friendly practices, and integrate sustainability throughout their business operations. Since 2009, the program has recognized over 130 California businesses and organizations for exemplary environmental leadership, many of which have used the tools on our website to determine their carbon footprint, reduce their emissions, and save money.
