Cool OC provide programs that educate the community on creating planet-friendly, disaster-resilient, and community-rich blocks within Orange County. Together with community partners, we bring together residents, businesses, NGO's, students, and government to make measurable reductions in carbon emissions to mitigate the increasing impacts of climate change. For disadvantaged communities, who are most impacted by the effects of climate change, we offer services, education, and resources to create resilient households that are equipped to deal with extreme weather impacts and prepare for disasters.
2023 Beacon Leadership & Innovation Award
We proudly announce that the Cool Irvine program received the 2023 Beacon Leadership & Innovation award and the Platinum Level "Spotlight" Award for efforts to reduce natural gas use as an agency by 38% over the past year. The Beacon Program recognizes and supports California local agencies working to build more vibrant and sustainable communities. Beacon honors voluntary efforts by cities, counties, and special districts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy, and adopt policies that promote sustainability.
The Cool Irvine Sustainability Fair was a huge success! This event provided information on energy efficiency, disaster preparedness, plant-based diets, rebates/tax credits, water conservation, and solar/battery storage! Our volunteers were excellent and we deeply appreciate all the support from the community and partners! We are so grateful for those who joined us!
