SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) December 17, 2020
Out of thousands of innovators from across the globe, StreetLight Data, Inc., the leader in Big Data analytics for mobility, was named a 2021 Global Cleantech 100 Company by Cleantech Group. Delivering solutions that will take us “from climate chaos to transformation,” the 100 companies on the list represent the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to contribute to a more digitized, de-carbonized and resource-efficient future. This is the 12th edition of the widely respected annual guide, and this year’s list includes innovators from 15 countries, with just over half located in the US and the rest in Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. The sectors covered include: Agriculture & Food, Enabling Technologies, Energy & Power, Materials & Chemicals, Transportation & Logistics and Resources & Environment.
“Reducing emissions from transportation is core to our mission, and it’s necessary to achieving national and global greenhouse gas targets. Our mobility measurement tools in the hands of transportation agencies and private mobility companies are having an impact everyday, and the StreetLight team is proud to have been selected as a 2021 Global Cleantech 100 Company,” said Laura Schewel, CEO and co-founder of StreetLight.
The list combines Cleantech Group’s research and insight from a global, 91-member Expert Panel of investors and executives 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.
“We are delighted to welcome StreetLight Data and 49 other companies for their first time on this year’s new Global Cleantech 100. This replacement rate speaks to the healthy maturing of this innovation ecosystem and to some specific impacts of Covid-19,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. “On the one hand, the 2021 list reflects the long-running mega-trends like decarbonization, digitization, electrification, and the ever-increasing volumes of deployed renewable energy. On the other, Covid-19’s impact is evident – for example, in the uptick in automation and robotics-enabled solutions, in logistics and supply chain solutions, and solutions in the food chain to prevent, reduce and repurpose food waste. Resilience is a new critical factor at play.”
