About The Cleanie Awards

Individuals and companies are increasingly prioritizing clean technology, or cleantech, and making significant strides toward a cleaner and more secure energy future. For evidence of this on a global scale, look no further than the United Nations. Many of The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are directly related to the usage of cleantech. It’s clear cleantech is here to stay.

In 2018, our founder, cleantech industry insider and entrepreneur, Laura Taylor, noticed a huge gap in industry recognition of people and brands making a positive impact in cleantech. That’s why we started The Cleanie Awards, the only cleantech awards program focused exclusively on honoring innovators and disruptors who are creating market-moving solutions. Our team includes a highly-prominent advisory board and judging panel. Together, we are experienced business leaders, entrepreneurs, and communicators with one big thing in common: we are advocates for advancing cleantech.

We are now in our third year, and we cannot wait to celebrate this year’s movers and shakers, including names from the Fortune 100 list, to hot startups, to pioneering individuals, and high-impact advocates. The program is under the direction and management of Randee Gilmore, executive director, and an independent panel of advisors and judges.
