Organica inducted into the Cleantech Hall of Fame (2020)

This year Organica was selected into the Cleantech 100 list again. We have been selected into this list every year in the last 7 years and this year Organica was inducted into the Cleantech Hall of Fame as well. The Global Cleantech 100 Hall of Fame is reserved for companies whose sustained excellence results in them appearing on the list an impressive seven times. The CleanTech Group is the oldest, most prestigious investor forum in the CleanTech industry. It represents more than $3 trillion in assets, and the Group’s global member network includes more than 8,000 investors, 6,000 companies, and 3,500 professional services organizations.

The “Company of the Year” award (Organica won this in 2013) is one of the most coveted recognition a company can get in the CleanTech industry. The “bottom up” voting process in which the 8000 investors are asked to nominate those companies which in their opinion will shape the future of their industries is secretive; the companies nominated are not even aware of their nominations. Organica’s induction into the Cleantech Hall of Fame acknowledges the company’s impact on the entire industry. It is a worldwide recognition that the future of wastewater treatment is defined largely by Organica’s approach.
