Cleantech 10 2010

This morning the opening bell of the TSX was rung by Toby Heaps, editor of Corporate Knights, and representatives of the Cleantech 10™, a list of Canada’s best publicly and privately held companies in the Cleantech realm. If this paragraph sounds familiar, well, it’s exactly what happened last year to commemorate the Cleantech 10™. Read it here.

So what’s new? (other than that you are reading this on Wordpress instead of Blogspot, or you should be!). Well, there are four new companies on the list.

ATS Automation Tooling designs and builds automation systems for many of the world's foremost manufacturers in areas as diverse as telecommunications, semiconductor, fiber optics, automotive, computers, solar energy and consumer products.

GLV Inc. is a global provider of technological solutions used in water treatment, recycling and purification, as well as in pulp and paper production. According to their website, ‘It notably stands apart for the superior performance of several of its key products and technologies, in particular with respect to their energy cost-efficiency.’

Primary Energy Recycling Corp. ‘creates value for its customers by capturing and recycling waste energy from industrial processes and converting it into reliable and economical electricity and thermal energy for its customers’ use.’

Pure Technologies develops innovative technologies for inspection, monitoring and management of physical infrastructure. “Being included as part of the Cleantech 10 emphasizes Pure’s presence as a company dedicated to sustainability and conservation,” said Jamie Paulson, Pure’s Chairman.

According to Corporate Knights, since the Cleantech 10™’s inception in 2007, it has outperformed the S&P/TSX Composite by 23 per cent (using an unweighted average of the past three Cleantech 10™’s returns as of October 25, 2010 and excluding dividends).

As of June 30th 2010 there are 129 clean technology issuers on the TSX with a combined market cap of $20.2B.
