Vancouver, BC – 16 January 2020, PST: Semios, a leading precision farming platform, was named a 2020 Global Cleantech 100 company by Cleantech Group.
The 2020 Global Cleantech 100 is the 11th edition of the respected annual guide to the leading companies and themes in sustainable innovation. It features the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to contribute to a more digitized, de-carbonized and resource-efficient industrial future.
“As the agricultural industry seeks new solutions to meet the demands of an expanding global population, we believe that big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence will be the most powerful tools a grower can use to influence their yield (quantity) and grade (quality) of their crops. We’re honored to be named amongst such an inspiring group of innovators looking for sustainable solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. ” said Semios CEO and Founder, Dr. Michael Gilbert.
The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 80-member expert panel of leading investors and executives from corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting. From pioneers and veterans to new entrants, the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community and results in a list with a powerful base of respect and support from many important players within the cleantech innovation ecosystem. The Global Cleantech 100 program is sponsored by Chubb.
“It feels right that our first list of the future-defining 2020s, should see a continued strengthening in the representation of truly impactful and necessary innovations to transform our diets, to enable a more renewable-heavy energy system, and to capture and utilize the vast levels of CO2 we have been freely emitting for decades,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. “Also included in our 2020 list are some big and critical shots at solving global problems – from proving out fusion and next-gen batteries to zero carbon aviation.”
