Corporate Knights Magazine names ecobee one of the Next 10 in the Cleantech 10
Toronto, November 15, 2010 – Corporate Knights Magazine named ecobee as one of the Cleanteach Next 10 companies. Corporate Knights has been following cleantech companies since 2007 and highlights the companies poised to make it big. They represent Canada’s best publicly and privately held companies in the Cleantech realm, and span a range of sectors. The Corporate Knights Cleantech 10Ô was compiled by Corporate Knights Inc. and Cleantech Group LLC, the leading provider of cleantech indices and information globally.
“ecobee has worked diligently to build a product and company that adheres to green practices.” states Stuart Lombard, President and CEO, ecobee. “We have set clear business and environmental objectives that will conserve energy, save money and reduce the environmental impact of ecobee users.”
As part of this prestigious group, ecobee will open the Toronto Stock Exchange on November 17, 2010. Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and TSX Venture Exchange are the leading growth markets for clean technology companies. Almost 130 clean technology companies are listed on the Exchanges.
“We are thrilled to be included on this list with so many other prominent Cleantech companies,” Lombard says.
The Cleantech 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.
