Coolcompanies.org is a project of the non-profit
Center for Energy & Climate Solutions
The Center was founded in 1999 by Dr. Joe Romm – former head of energy efficiency and renewables at the US Department of Energy – to promote clean and efficient energy technologies as a money-saving tool for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. We help businesses, government, and environmental organizations develop technological, strategic, financial, and regulatory tools to foster the adoption of clean solutions.
The Center helps companies design and implement strategies to cut energy use and pollution – particularly the greenhouse gas emissions responsible for global warming. We develop institutional ‘best practices’ for greenhouse gas reduction, and provide neutral, credible verification of emissions baselines and reductions. We also partner with outside organizations to promote these approaches using performance-based data and contemporary case studies presented through a variety of channels.
CECS is a Division of the Global Environment & Technology Foundation.
