California small businesses are an important driver of California's economy. All businesses use energy, produce goods and services, and have employees who commute/travel for work. These activities produce greenhouse gas emissions. To facilitate voluntary greenhouse gas emission reductions in a cost effective way, resources on our site have been developed to help small businesses save money and limit their environmental impact.
The CoolCalifornia Small Business Awards recognize California small businesses that reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, promote climate friendly practices and integrate the tools on CoolCalifornia.org into their business operations.
