2020 APAC 25 List

Every September, Cleantech Group unveils a new edition of the APAC 25, a list of 25 private innovation companies from across the region and across our sectors. The list follows a similar process to the Global Cleantech 100. Nominations come from both the Global Cleantech 100 and a dedicated expert panel.

Along with the list, Cleantech Group issues a briefing report on key innovation and investment trends in the region, with contributing thoughts from many of the companies and the investors and corporate executives from the APAC 25 expert panel.


Meet the innovators on the APAC 25

Join us on 20-21 October 2020 for the fifth edition of Cleantech Interactive. On October 20 2020, we will discuss key trends from the report and a selection of the APAC25 companies will present themselves. October 21’s program is focused on the topical theme, Climate Crisis Post Covid: Reframing the Opportunities for our Cities. Join us in October.

Cleantech Forum Asia on 20-21 April 2021 in Singapore is the leading international sustainable innovation event in the region. It attracts the start-ups and scale-ups, investors and corporations from Asia Pacific and beyond. Join us in April to meet some of the APAC 25 companies in person.

The list was launched in September 2018 and made possible by the support of Enterprise Singapore. The Asian Development Bank (ADB Ventures) has since joined Enterprise Singapore to support both the 2019 and 2020 lists.
