Expert Panelists

Members of our expert panel play an important role in Phase II of how the Global Cleantech 100 list comes together. Each are given a limited number of votes they can use to voice a strong opinion, be it positive or negative, to strengthen or weaken a shortlisted company's case for making the final 100. They also provide company nominations along with hundreds of others in Phase 1. The expert panel is drawn principally from representatives of multi-national corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting, and from leading financial investors in Asia, Europe and North America. The panel includes pioneers, leaders, old veterans, and new entrants in Cleantech. The composition of the expert panel is created to be broadly representative of the global cleantech community, reinforcing the intention that the end result be a list in which all, or most, sub-sectors of cleantech are represented, and many countries have the chance to be represented in approximate proportionality to their share of the overall number of innovative, private cleantech companies in the world.
