San Francisco, CA – 12 January 2023 — Cleantech Group has just released the Global Cleantech 100, an annual list of the most innovative and promising companies that will take us from commitments to actions in our efforts to reach net-zero.
The 14th annual Global Cleantech 100 will introduce you to the companies with outstanding technologies, original business models, and bold plans that can enable us to act on the ever-increasing climate and environmental crises. Uncover where to look for opportunity and increase investment. A detailed analysis of which sectors are gaining investment and what trends to keep an eye on rounds out the publication.
The Selection Process
The total number of nominations from the public, our expert panel, our i3 research portal, awards, and Cleantech Group staff totaled 15,753 from over 93 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 330 companies that were reviewed by the 81 members of our expert panel. The Global Cleantech 100 Expert Panel is made up of leading investors, corporate and industrial executives who are active in technology and innovation scouting.
The selected innovators are delivering sustainable solutions in these five sectors:
In addition, an Enabling Technologies section details trends in technologies and solutions that enable efficiency and resource conservation across Agriculture & Food, Energy & Power, Materials & Chemicals, Resources & Environment, and Transportation & Logistics industry groups.
“This Global Cleantech 100 edition is remarkable for the number of businesses in it who represent solutions for some of the hardest of decarbonization challenges and those who are working on some of the critical materials issues coming our way, real soon,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. “We salute not only these 100 companies, but all the thousands beyond, who are fighting the good fight.”
These featured companies will be recognized at the upcoming Cleantech Forum North America on January 23-25 in Palm Springs, CA. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with many of the companies on the list, along with many other rising stars.
The Global Cleantech 100 program has been running since 2009, the last 10 years with the support of Chubb, the world’s largest property and casualty insurance company.
