CCC Awards

The Confronting Climate Change Initiative (CCC) was honoured with a bronze award in the Climate Change category at the very prestigious Eco-Logic Awards function at the Table Bay Hotel on 21 April 2016. The Eco-Logic Climate Change Award was sponsored by the Department of Environmental Affairs and recognizes an organization that has achieved a substantial reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions.

This reward serves as recognition to the fruit and wine industry bodies and the Western Cape Department of Agriculture for the commitment to the project over the past few years, as well as the loyal CCC tool users that have realized what an important business management tool it is, and how it can help producers to minimize their carbon emissions.

Confronting Climate Change, together with Blue North Sustainability, would like to congratulate and give recognition to all the individuals and industry organizations that have worked on this project, and continue to believe in its potential!
