The U.S. EPA and its three NGO partners -- the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO), the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES), and The Climate Registry (The Registry) -- are now accepting applications for the 2014 Climate Leadership Awards, which call national attention to exemplary corporate, organizational, and individual leadership in response to climate change.

The application period will be open through September 13, 2013, with a new early bird deadline of August 7, 2013. EPA’s Climate Leadership Awards webpage details the application process.

Applicants that choose to submit a preliminary application by the early bird date of August 7 will receive an initial review for completeness and clarity, and any requests for clarifications will be sent by August 16. All final submissions will be due by September 13. Winners will be notified in December and publicly honored on February 25, 2014 at an awards dinner in conjunction with the Climate Leadership Conference to be held in San Diego, CA.
