Contern, Luxembourg, 20 November 2013 – Luxemburgish company Epuramat has received ISO 9001 certification, issued by accredited certification body TÜV Rheinland. This official certificate is a significant step in the development of Epuramat and recognizes the quality management system established and operated within the company, based in particular on continuous improvement, product quality and customer satisfaction.
The Global Cleantech 100 list is unique because it highlights the promise of private clean technology companies from all around the world, focusing on those companies which the players in the market feel are currently the most likely to make the most significant market impact over the next 5-10 years.
“We are proud that Epuramat has been selected as one of the 100 most promising cleantech companies in the world. This is for us the recognition of the efforts undertaken by the company to design and manufacture high-quality and innovative wastewater treatment systems which meet the real market needs”, said Epuramat CEO, Dr. Silvano Sommer.
The list is derived from Cleantech Group’s own data and research, combined with the weighted qualitative judgments of hundreds of nominations, and the viewpoints of a global 90-person Expert Panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.
“The Global Cleantech 100 is a natural extension of our vision to help corporations and investors connect with innovation around the world,” said Sheeraz Haji, CEO of Cleantech Group. “This list celebrates inspiring entrepreneurs, and serves as the industry standard on gauging where innovation is headed across key sectors.”
5,864 companies were nominated this year from 60 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 300 companies. Vital information on these short-listed companies—including key data from Cleantech Group’s i3 platform—was presented to the expert panel for final input. The end result was 100 companies from 18 countries.
“The composition of the 2013 Global Cleantech 100 represents a distinct shift in thinking from deal-makers in the marketplace,” said Richard Youngman, Cleantech Group’s Managing Director, Europe & Asia. “Fifty-one new entrants and noticeable shifts in sub-sectors and company types commanding the broadest level of support speak to a transition of opinion of which types of companies deal-makers believe today are the most likely to have significant market impact in a 5-10 year timeframe.”
The complete list of 100 companies was revealed on October 9th at the Global Cleantech 100 Summit & Gala in Washington, D.C.: http://events.cleantech.com/global100/.
