Multiple members of the 'Transparent' cast wore green ribbons to raise awareness for the Clean Power Plan.

Jeffrey Tambor stood onstage accepting his Emmy proudly donning a large green ribbon in support of #DemandClimateAction.

The ribbon represents support for the Clean Power Plan, President Barack Obama's policy aimed at fighting global warming. The plan establishes the first national standards limiting carbon pollution from power plants. The Obama administration worked with the Environmental Protection Agency to release the plan.

It aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 32 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.

Tambor is not the only celebrity donning the green ribbon at the Emmys: Fellow Transparent castmembers are wearing it as well as other celebrities in the audience.
