ZeroAvia Selected for Cleantech Group’s 2022 Global Cleantech 100 list of Companies Committed to Taking Action on the Climate Crisis
January 13, 2022
Hollister, California, January 13, 2022—ZeroAvia has been named a 2022 Global Cleantech 100 Company by Cleantech Group. The 100 companies on the list represent the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to deliver solutions that will take us from commitments to actions in the sprint to net zero. This is the 13th edition of the widely respected annual guide. This year’s list included entries from 94 countries. The sectors covered include Agriculture & Food, Enabling Technologies, Energy & Power, Materials & Chemicals, Resources & Environment and Transportation & Logistics.
Val Miftakhov, CEO and founder of ZeroAvia, said:
“It is an honor to be recognized alongside so many other innovators within the cleantech space. It is great to see influential bodies starting to take notice that meaningful and sustainable change is both necessary and possible within the aviation industry. We are leading this effort with our hydrogen-electric propulsion technology for commercial-sized aircraft and are excited to continue our efforts toward zero-emission flight.”
The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgments from nominations and insight from a global, 85-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. The Global Cleantech 100 program is sponsored by Chubb.
Richard Youngman, CEO Cleantech Group, said:
“We have the science and ingenuity to solve most of the issues and there is the investment capital, in both private and public markets, to propel a three-decade transformation, to net zero. The 2022 Global Cleantech 100 companies show this in spades. What they, and hundred others like them, now need is braver regulators, policy makers and procurement departments, to enable such solutions to scale and go down their different cost curves much faster than the current trajectories.”
