San Diego, Calif. (February 2019) — Each year Climate Change Business Journal recognizes outstanding business performance in the climate change industry with our CCBJ Business Achievement Awards. Climate Change Business Journal is proud to announce its 9th annual business achievement awards for achievements in 2018. Congratulations to the winners, and we hope to see you in San Diego for the official awards ceremony, a part of Environmental Industry Summit XVII on March 20-22, 2019 at the Coronado Island Marriott.
CHANGE was chosen to receive the highly competitive CCBJ award for Project Merit: Renewable Energy Policy Advocacy and Development for assisting the American Heart Association (AHA) as lead consultants in developing key policy levers to address air quality, including development of the first national renewable portfolio standards policy lever that the AHA can embed within its advocacy portfolio over the next decade to promote lifelong health and well-being. CHANGE conducted significant research to outline the policy landscape and key opportunities for AHA positions and advocacy. CHANGE’s final report is guiding AHA advocacy efforts as it works with key partners, agencies and stakeholders at all levels of government to contribute to the adoption of renewable energy and transform air quality for a healthier planet.
In October-December 2018, CCBJ solicited industry, government, non-profits and the broader climate change community via e-mail, social media, its website, industry events and word-of-mouth for nominations for the 2018 CCBJ Business Achievement Awards. Nominations were accepted in 200-word essays in either specific or unspecified categories. Categories may have been adjusted depending on the volume of nominations or the number of worthy recipients. Final awards were determined by a committee of CCBJ staff and CCBJ editorial advisory board members
