Global Cleantech 100 – Most Promising New Green Technologies

November 5, 2010

Cleantech Group™, LLC, the leading global research, advisory, and events firm focused on cleantech innovation, unveiled the second, annual Global Cleantech 100 at the Cleantech Forum® New York.

The Global Cleantech 100 is unique in that it highlights the most promising private clean technology companies from around the world. The selected companies are the most likely to make the significant market impact over the next 5-10 years, in the eyes of the world’s cleantech experts.

The results are derived by Cleantech Group, who draws on its own data and research, and combines it with the weighted qualitative judgments of both hundreds of cleantech industry insiders, and the viewpoints of a 60-person international expert panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit and cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.

The Global Cleantech 100 sample pool consisted of 4,616 nominations that were submitted by 3,260 unique sources, resulting in a list of 3,138 companies drawn from 50 countries. The list was then paired down to 218 companies that were presented to the expert panel for final input. The 60-strong expert panel is drawn from well-respected organizations in cleantech innovation from around the world, including leading investors such as Emerald Technology Ventures, Generation Investment Management, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, New Enterprise Associates, SAM Private Equity, Sequoia Capital, and VantagePoint Venture Partners, and from a wide variety of corporations from many different industries, such as BASF, GE, Honeywell, IBM, Procter & Gamble, Siemens, and Veolia.

Here’s the full list.
