The California Air Resources Board is now taking nominations through Sept. 3 for its new CoolCalifornia Small Business Award program that will recognize small businesses from across the state that demonstrate climate leadership. California businesses with fewer than 100 employees are eligible. Measures may include energy efficiency, clean vehicle fleets, green purchasing and water conservation.
Each business will be scored according to its climate change management practices, energy improvements and related communication strategies. Up to 20 “CoolCalifornia” and approximately five “Small Business of the Year” awards will be presented at a November ceremony in Sacramento. In addition, winners will be featured on the www.CoolCalifornia.org website with links to the business’s webpage.
