Carbon Engineering has been named on the Global Cleantech 100 list by Cleantech Group and honoured the 2021 North American Company of the Year Award.

Awarded annually, the Global Cleantech 100 is a list of companies with the most promising solutions for a more digitised, de-carbonised and resource-efficient world.

The list features private, independent and for-profit companies that are positioned to drive sustainability and change and have the greatest potential to make a significant market impact within five to ten years.

“Carbon Engineering is honoured to be named the Global Cleantech 100 North American Company of the Year,” said Steve Oldham, Carbon Engineering’s CEO.

“We share this honour with the entire community of cleantech innovators that have been recognised by Cleantech Group and that are working tirelessly to progress solutions to the world’s climate and energy problems.”

“Despite the tremendous challenges the global community faced in 2020, we are buoyed by the momentum we are seeing in the effort to act on climate change. For CE, 2020 was a particularly significant year.”

“We signed a world-first licensing deal with Occidental and 1PointFive to build megaton-scale Direct Air Capture facilities in the US, and greatly progressed the engineering of the first of these facilities. We also secured our first corporate customers in 2020; Shopify and Virgin Red.”

“Receiving this award is a significant acknowledgement of this progress. It also highlights the growing recognition of the need for carbon removal tools like ours in the global race to reach net zero emissions.”
