The Climate Leadership Conference (CLC) is a platform for powerful collaboration among corporate sustainability leaders, senior government officials, academics and non-profit executives to address climate change through policy, innovation, and business solutions.

The CLC convenes around U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s prestigious Climate Leadership Awards and is produced by The Climate Registry, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, and the Association of Climate Change Officers, with U.S. EPA as the event’s headline sponsor.

A global audience of executives, practitioners, and organizations confronting climate change in their operations gather to explore energy and climate related solutions, introduce new opportunities, and provide support to those peers taking meaningful action on climate.
