Selected from over ten thousand nominated innovators, the Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising companies that can take us from commitments to actions in our global efforts to reach net zero. The annual list contains the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to drive the transformation the world needs now.
Breadth and depth
This is the 13th edition of the of the widely respected list and includes innovators from 20 countries. The sectors covered are: Agriculture & Food, Enabling Technologies, Energy & Power, Materials & Chemicals, Resources & Environment and Transportation & Logistics.
The Selection Process
The Global Cleantech 100 combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations made by an 86-member Expert Panel composed of leading investors and executives active in technology investment and innovation scouting. From pioneers and veterans to fresh entrants, the Expert Panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem.
“We have the science and ingenuity to solve most of the issues and there is the investment capital, in both private and public markets, to propel a three-decade transformation, to net zero.” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. “The 2022 Global Cleantech 100 companies show this in spades. What they, and hundred others like them, now need is braver regulators, policy makers and procurement departments, to enable such solutions to scale and go down their different cost curves much faster than the current trajectories
The Global Cleantech 100 program continues to be sponsored by Chubb, the world’s largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company.
