Frontier Project Honors Governor Schwarzenegger at Governors’ Global Climate Summit 3
DAVIS, Calif., Nov. 19, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — California’s Chief Executive, Governor Arnold A. Schwarzenegger was honored for his environmental achievements by the Frontier Project Foundation at the Governors’ Global Climate Summit 3 (GGCS 3) at UC Davis in Davis, California. Governor Schwarzenegger co-hosted the event as an exemplary subnational leader in climate change and environmental policy.
Each year, the Frontier Project Foundation recognizes environmental stewards who have made an impact on sustainability on a local and national level. Vice-Chair of the Frontier Project Kathy Tiegs had the opportunity to present the distinguished award to Governor Schwarzenegger at GGCS 3 where he noted California’s past and present green progress.
“By honoring Governor Schwarzenegger at the Governors’ Global Climate Summit 3 with the Environmental Steward Award, the Frontier Project Foundation continues to align its sustainable building and developmental goals with California’s overall environmental objectives,” said Tiegs.
Governor Schwarzenegger’s notable environmental accomplishments during his tenure include the nation-leading Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 – a bipartisan agreement to combat global warming by reducing California’s greenhouse gas. Governor Schwarzenegger is the first governor in decades to make major investments in improving California’s aging infrastructure through his Strategic Growth Plan, helping to reduce congestion and clean the air. He established the Hydrogen Highway and Million Solar Roofs Plan, continuing his leadership in creating a greener environment. In November 2009, more than three years of leadership by Governor Schwarzenegger culminated with the passage of the Safe, Clean and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2010.
