In a landmark 4 year partnership, PG&E and the California Academy of Sciences seek to educate visitors about climate change and sustainability. By leveraging the two organizations’ collective expertise, Californians have the opportunity to educate themselves regarding the role they play, and how they themselves can take action.
Both institutions are uniquely qualified for the endeavor. The Academy is the largest public Platinum-rated Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building in the world, and also the world's greenest museum. PG&E has been termed the Number One Utility in Newsweek's List of 'Greenest Big Companies in America'.
Together, PG&E and the Academy collaborate on innovative and timely programming to enhance visitor experience and education. As the lead sustainability sponsor of the Academy, PG&E provides energy-related content for the "Science in Action" exhibit and incorporate PG&E subject experts into ongoing Academy programming. PG&E also functions as the lead sponsor of the Academy's unique environmental-sustainability exhibit, Altered State: Climate Change in California.
These exhibits address the timely issue of environmental sustainability through displays about climate change, biodiversity, and green building strategies. In particular, the Altered State: Climate Change in California exhibit explores the consequences of people's daily actions in California and around the world, and encourages discussion about the steps that can be taken to mitigate dramatic changes.

"The need for science and climate change education is one of the most critical issues of our time. PG&E, which continues to demonstrate environmental leadership within California and nationwide, is an ideal partner for the California Academy of Sciences as we seek to serve as a leading resource for science education in the 21st century."
