Five EIT Climate-KIC innovators featured in Global Cleantech 100

Five EIT Climate-KIC supported innovative ventures included in the Global Cleantech 100 list.

The Global Cleantech 100 list is a guide to the most innovative and promising companies poised to impact the market and the future of global industries in the next five to ten years. From transportation and logistics to agriculture, energyfoodchemicals and resources, the report covers six sectors and provides analyses of the themes and trends shaping the market and corporate investment.

Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group, said:

“It feels right that our first list of the future-defining 2020s, should see a continued strengthening in the representation of truly impactful and necessary innovations to transform our diets, to enable a more renewable-heavy energy system, and to capture and utilise the vast levels of CO2 we have been freely emitting for decades. Also included in our 2020 list are some big and critical shots at solving global problems—from proving out fusion and next-generation batteries to zero carbon aviation.”
