Rationale for the Awards: We formed Climate Salad with a vision to accelerate climate action with technology. We do this by helping climate tech companies grow with customers, talent, resources and investment by building a supportive community. Most of our members have joined to be part of the community of practice lifting the bar of what it means to create a climate solution with technology. As one of our members said "if one company succeeds, we all do, I share that success. It's in my best interest to see the whole community do well".
