The prestigious Global Cleantech 100 highlights the most promising private clean technology companies from all around the world. In the eyes of the world’s cleantech experts, these companies are the most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next five to 10 years. In all, 4,616 nominations were received from 3,260 unique sources, generating a long list of 3,138 companies drawn from 50 countries. Two hundred and eighteen companies were presented to the expert panel for final input, resulting in a final list of 100 companies from 14 countries.
The final list of 100 private companies was selected based on the company’s excellence, uniqueness, and reach of their solution, their market dynamics, and size, as well as their ability to execute.
