Santa Barbara, California, USA– 24 January 2022, PST:

C-Zero, a hard-tech company working to decarbonize natural gas through the production of clean hydrogen, was named Early Stage Company of the Year in the 2022 Global Cleantech 100 by the Cleantech Group. The award is given to the highest-ranked product development/pre- or early-revenue company in the Global Cleantech 100 list.

The 2022 Global Cleantech 100 is the 13th 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 take us from commitments to actions in our global efforts to reach net zero.

“We are excited and humbled to have been both selected for the 2022 Cleantech 100 list, and also voted Early Stage Company of the Year by the Cleantech Group’s membership. We hope that by raising awareness of our low-cost, clean hydrogen technology, we can play a part in making the global energy transition as affordable as possible” said Zach Jones (CEO, C-Zero).

The list combines Cleantech Group’s research data with qualitative judgements from nominations and insight from a global 86-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 continues to be sponsored by Chubb, the world’s largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance company.

“We look forward to seeing the progress and future impact of our 2022 Global Cleantech 100 award winners,” said Richard Youngman, CEO, Cleantech Group. “We hope to see them, and their peer companies help propel a three-decade transformation to net zero before 2050.”
