San Diego Gas & Electric received national recognition at this year’s Climate Leadership Awards in Washington, D.C. The company was given the Supply Chain Leadership Award for its aggressive efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout its supply chains.

The ceremony is presented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Association of Climate Change Officers, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions and the Climate Registry.

“We are ‘greening’ our entire value chain — beginning with our suppliers — by challenging them to provide us with more sustainable solutions and greener products,” said Pamela Fair, SDG&E’s chief environmental officer, in a statement. “We challenge ourselves and our employees to continuously pursue more sustainable ways to operate our business and to provide service to our customers. Finally, we work every day with all our customers to offer programs and information to help them save energy.”

The company last year was presented an organizational leadership award for its attempts at reducing its carbon footprint.
