10 Canadian businesses chosen from more than 12,000 nominations

The Global Cleantech 100 lists companies that represent the most innovative and promising ideas in cleantech and are best positioned to solve the clean technology challenges of the future. They are chosen by combining research data from Cleantech Group, more than 12,000 nominations and input from a panel of experts.

Cleantech Group (CTG), founded in 2002 and based in San Francisco, monitors more than 25,000 companies worldwide across more than 1,000 technologies. Its annual Cleantech 100 honours businesses that the global innovation community believes are most likely to have a big commercial impact in the next five to 10 years.

Still, the list isn’t definitive; it’s a consensus regarding which companies active in sustainable innovation are in favour and what kinds of sub-sectors and themes are fashionable, according to CTG.

This year’s results were announced on January 22 at the 2018 Cleantech Forum San Francisco. Of the 10 Canadian companies that made the list, seven are based in B.C.
