Canadian cleantech company CarbonCure has been awarded the 2020 North American Cleantech Company of the Year by the Cleantech Group.

As well as receiving the award, CarbonCure was also listed on the Global Cleantech 100 list for the fifth consecutive year.

“CarbonCure is honoured to be the first Canadian company to receive the North American Cleantech Company of the Year award, and to be named to the Global Cleantech 100 list for the fifth year in a row,” said Rob Niven, CarbonCure Founder and CEO.

“CarbonCure is on its way to achieving 500 megatons of CO2 reductions annually, helping to decarbonise the built environment while positioning the concrete industry to lead the transition to the new low-carbon economy. 

2019 was a record year for CarbonCure due to its growing number of CarbonCure producers and their commitment to producing more sustainable concrete. In 2019, the total production volume of reduced-carbon concrete nearly doubled from the previous year, surpassing four million cubic years.
