Leading Private Clean Technology Companies in Asia Pacific Named in 2020 List


SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 15 September, 2020

Cleantech Group (CTG) released the third annual APAC 25 list. The APAC 25 is a list of private companies from the Asia Pacific region engaged in sustainable innovation that are viewed by the market as likely to have significant impact in a five-to-ten-year time frame.

Cleantech Group put together the third annual list of 25 companies through a combination of APAC-related inputs from the annual Global Cleantech 100 process with detailed contributions from an APAC 25 expert panel. The companies on the list had the strongest patterns of agreement across all the input points and were scored the highest.

The APAC 25 is made possible by the support of ADB Ventures and Enterprise Singapore.

Decision Process

Members of the APAC 25 expert panel play an important role in creating the list. Each provides between three and nine nominations, no more than a third of which can be portfolio companies (in the case of investors). Expert panelists can weight their nominations, and all nominations are blind (no expert sees the other panelists’ nominations). These nominations are then combined with the outcomes from the Global Cleantech 100 process, which benefits from thousands of data points.

Regional Outlook

“This region will dominate some of the new industries and supply chains that will emerge from global mega-trends such as alternative proteins, electrification and  new mobility, to name but three,” said Richard Youngman, CEO of Cleantech Group. “ It will also be a leader in digitalization, given its weight of population and the size of its industrial base. Both dynamics are borne out in our third annual APAC 25 list of rising star innovation companies from around the region.”
