FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Welcome to The Cleanie Awards© community! We are the leading awards program focused on recognizing innovators and those making an impact in the clean energy economy. Our industry is growing at an accelerated pace, and we are on a mission to highlight the leading brands and thought leaders that are paving the way to a decarbonized future.
As the leading cleantech awards program, we are able to deliver unmatched content, insights, and recognition. In addition to being recognized by a panel of distinguished industry leaders and peers from across the industry, participating in the program provides access to the brightest minds and connects participants to an expanded network of organizations and thought leaders.
It should come as no surprise that in the latest Bloomberg BNEF report from January 2021, global cleantech is well-positioned to transform the energy industry for the long term. If you take a look at our industry’s impact in the last year, it’s clear that the time is now to showcase your company’s innovation and role in transforming the sector. Long gone are the days of sitting passively on the sidelines.
We are at the beginning of a decisive decade and one in which every ounce of innovation matters. According to the United Nations, climate change is the defining crisis of our time and it is happening even more quickly than we feared. But… this isn’t all bad news. Secretary-General António Guterres says, “the climate emergency is a race we are losing, but it is a race we can win”. The Cleanie Awards celebrates individuals and teams who are not only in the race to solve this crisis, but make an impact, come out on top, and understand THE FUTURE IS NOW.
We are proudly entering the fourth year of our awards program, and to say we’re excited is an understatement. After last year’s double digit growth increase (yes… even during a global pandemic!), we anticipate this year will be our biggest and best yet. Look for more categories and opportunities for recognition. We’re continuously welcoming new judges, advisors, and brand ambassadors. We’re giving the public a voice with the introduction of people’s choice categories. All that’s left is adding your name to our community.
I invite you to apply to this year’s awards and please reach out if you have any questions. We look forward to celebrating you, the movers and shakers who are energizing, transforming, and accelerating the clean energy economy. We’re in this together.
– Randee Gilmore, Executive Director, The Cleanie Awards
