Digital Lumens is Named in the 2017 Global Cleantech 100, Inducted into New GCT100 Hall of Fame

Recognized as One of the Top Private Companies in Clean Technology for the Seventh Time

BOSTON, MA – JANUARY 24, 2017 – Digital Lumens, the market leader in intelligent LED lighting and sensor-based smart building applications, today announced it was named for the seventh consecutive time to the prestigious 2017 Global Cleantech 100 list, produced by Cleantech Group (CTG), whose work keeps its audiences and clients in touch with emerging trends, leading innovation companies and all key players in sustainable innovation.

The Global Cleantech 100 represents the most innovative and promising ideas impacting the future of a wide-range of industries. Featuring companies that are best positioned to solve tomorrow’s clean technology challenges, the Global Cleantech 100 is a comprehensive list of private companies with the highest potential to make significant market impact within a 5-10 year timeframe.

In addition to being one of the top 100 private companies in cleantech, Digital Lumens was also one of five companies inducted into the first class of the new GCT100 Hall of Fame. This is a new honor intended to recognize sustained excellence in the clean technology space.

“We are grateful to be recognized among other leading clean tech companies in the Global Cleantech 100 again this year,” said Tom Pincince, president and CEO of Digital Lumens. “We are especially honored to be among the first inductees in the GCT100 Hall of Fame. For Digital Lumens, 2016 was another exciting year of innovation, and our growing global footprint has set the table for some exciting introductions in 2017. We are looking forward to continued development of one-of-a-kind smart building solutions that enable our customers to operate more sustainable, efficient, and intelligent businesses.”

This list is collated by combining proprietary CTG research data, with weighted qualitative judgments from hundreds of nominations, and specific inputs from a global 86-person expert panel. To qualify for the list, companies must be independent, for-profit, cleantech companies that are not listed on any major stock exchange.

This year, a record number of nominations were received: 9,900 distinct companies from 77 countries. These companies were weighted and scored to create a short list of 325 companies. Short-listed nominees were reviewed by CTG’s expert panel, resulting in a finalized list of 100 companies from 17 countries.

The 86-member expert panel was drawn equally from leading financial investors and representatives of multinational corporations and industrials active in technology and innovation scouting across Asia, Europe, and North America. The composition of the expert panel broadly represents the global cleantech community, from pioneers and leaders to veterans and new entrants. The diversity of panelists results in a list of companies that command an expansive base of respect and support from many important players within the global cleantech innovation ecosystem.

“From day one, the purpose of the Global Cleantech 100 program was to act as our barometric read on how the many facets that contribute to the emergence and maturing of an innovation theme like cleantech (the “doing of more with less”) are changing year on year,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, CTG. “Now in its 8th year, we see more signals this year of the ongoing mainstreaming of clean technologies, sustainability, and resource efficiency on its journey towards the point where this is just the normal way business is done.”
