GreenSync has been named a 2020 Global Cleantech 100 company, reasserting its place for the second year among global sustainability and cleantech innovators.

The 2020 Global Cleantech 100 by Cleantech Group is the 11th edition of the respected annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to contribute to a more digitised, de-carbonised and resource-efficient industrial future.

“We’re excited to receive this recognition for the second year in a row, alongside such high-calibre companies,” GreenSync CEO Phil Blythe said.

“With Australia’s start to 2020 being a stark reminder of what the impact of climate change can have on countries, economies and ecosystems, it reinforces the need for innovative solutions that will help us decarbonise and build resilient energy systems as fast as possible.”

The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 80-member expert panel of leading investors and executives from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting. From pioneers and veterans to new entrants, the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem.

“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 utilize the vast levels of CO2 we have been freely emitting for decades,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group.

“Also included in our 2020 list are some big and critical shots at solving global problems – from proving out fusion and next-gen batteries to zero carbon aviation.”
