More about the 2011 Global Cleantech 100
The Global Cleantech 100 list is unique because it highlights the promise of private clean technology companies from all around the world, focusing on those companies which are most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years. The list is derived from Cleantech Group’s own data and research combined with the weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations and the viewpoints of a global panel of 70 cleantech experts. The judges evaluated over 4,200 nominations of independent, for-profit cleantech companies. Nominated firms were scored on three key criteria: their innovation, their market’s size and growth, and the company’s ability and resources to execute its technology.
“We are proud of how quickly the Global Cleantech 100 list has gained recognition as a leading resource in the cleantech sector,” said Sheeraz Haji, Cleantech Group CEO. “Stakeholders including members of the corporate community, investors, and regulators now watch the Global Cleantech 100 list closely to gauge which sectors look most promising and which companies are poised for growth.”
The complete list of 100 companies is being revealed today at the Global Cleantech 100 Summit & Gala in Washington, D.C. http://events.cleantech.com/global100/. Global Cleantech 100 companies will be featured at this event as well as at the Guardian’s Cleantech Summit in London on 22 November 2011 (http://www.guardian.co.uk/cleantech-summit).
