TORONTO, November 14, 2011 - This Wednesday (November 16) Corporate Knights, the company for clean capitalism, will unveil the preeminent list of Canadian public and private cleantech companies, the Cleantech 10™ and Next 10. Corporate Knights has been following cleantech companies since 2007, and highlighting the companies poised to make it big. The CEOs of the Cleantech 10™ and Next 10 will open Toronto Stock Exchange on November 16, 2011. The Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange host over 130 clean technology companies with a combined quoted market value of $16,754,255,148 as of September 30, 2011.
The Corporate Knights Cleantech 10™ was compiled by Corporate Knights Inc. and Cleantech Group LLC, the leading provider of Cleantech indices and information globally. The Cleantech 10™ list was created by Rafael Coven, Managing Director and Index Manager of The Cleantech Index (CTIUS; cleantechindex.com), which underlies several Index-based funds such as the PowerShares Cleantech ETF (NYSE:PZD), and is the first and only index to cover cleantech companies across a broad array of industries. The Next 10 were selected by an advisory panel of Canada’s foremost authorities on cleantech, using four judging criteria: creativity and original approach, solving a business problem, clear business objective, and best chance of breaking through.
