The award was given for fifteen energy efficiency projects at Universal Studios from 2014 to 2017. Those projects include LED lighting installation in broadcast studios, LED lighting improvements at Universal Studios Hollywood theme park, and retrofitted central plants among others. The projects submitted for the Cool Planet Award are now saving the company approximately 6.2 million kWH annually.

“California continues to demonstrate that carbon emissions can be decoupled from economic growth. The Cool Planet Award recognizes businesses that incorporate sustainability into their long term plans,” said Ann McCabe, Interim Executive Director of The Climate Registry. “The Award recipients demonstrated a commitment to reducing their carbon footprint by working alongside SCE in order to manage their energy use.”

The awards ceremony and luncheon took place at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden in Arcadia, CA. For more information, please visit www.theclimateregistry.org
