Do you know a California startup company inspiring consumers and eliminating carbon emissions in energy and transportation? The LACI Earth Day Innovator Award recognizes startup companies on a mission to put the action in climate action by creating the solutions we need to drastically reduce carbon emissions. This award recognizes companies that are addressing some of our toughest clean energy challenges: renewable energy, energy storage, energy efficiency, grid optimization, and EV charging.

Do you know someone who loves the environment, speaks for the plants and animals, and has made a difference in a school, a classroom, or in our community? They might just be the recipient of our second annual Explore Ecology Environmental Stewardship Awards, which recognize local leaders who promote environmental stewardship through education and action. Award categories open for teacher, classes/schools, clubs, and students.
