The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), hosted this webinar on the inaugural CEM Energy Management Leadership Awards.

Calling all global leaders in clean energy. The Clean Energy Ministerial invites your company or organization to compete for a prestigious global award by sharing your experiences in implementing energy management strategies through ISO 5000. Top companies and organizations will be honored with the Energy Management Leadership Award at the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7) meeting on 1–2 June 2016 in San Francisco, California, United States, which will gather energy ministers from the 24 CEM member governments and other clean energy leaders and partners from around the world.

Organizations around the globe are implementing ISO 50001-certified energy management systems to improve competitiveness and achieve and sustain energy, economic, and sustainability benefits. CEM governments recognize that ISO 50001 offers a transparent and business-friendly mechanism that aligns business goals with national climate and energy goals. The CEM Energy Management Leadership Awards recognize those who are transforming their organizations and the world with ISO 50001. Share your organization’s experiences and inspire others to implement this winning strategy.
