The Jury of the World CleanTech Awards (WCA) announced The Winners of the Edition 2022 (WCA2022) during its Black-Tie Gala Ceremony held on January 15, 2023, in a spectacular “Under The Oculus” venue at the Conrad Etihad Towers Hotel Abu Dhabi, UAE, as a special part of the CBC Annual Leadership Forum "Empowering Together The CleanTech Decade!” 

The CleanTech Business Club (CBC) together with its strategic partners has been honouring visionary individuals since 2017, and for the second time, recognised innovative companies and startups championing the cleantech transformation mission.

 

“We are very pleased to congratulate this impressive slate of winners of our World CleanTech Awards and Distinctions. 2023 will be a very important year again for further progress towards our goal of 100% renewable energy (RE) supply, as we have to achieve important reductions of Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2030,” said Prof. Eicke Weber, Chair of the WCA Jury, Chair of the European Solar Manufacturing Council and Former Director of Fraunhofer ISE. “The WCA Winners and CBC Leadership communities represent a unique worldwide network of like-minded, enthusiastic friends, united behind the common goal, to help by doing what we can for these targets. In addition, this community shares the resources required in order to achieve our climate goals within this decade. Together, we can do it as #TogehterWeAreStrogner!”.
