For some years, we have been monitoring the growing number of examples of where Asian and western organizations are coming together to address environmental challenges for mutual economic benefit.
In the past 12-18 months, we have felt that there is a definite uptick in the activity levels. This has been confirmed by an analysis we just completed on the 100 companies we will release as the latest edition of the Global Cleantech 100. In the 6th edition, 20 of the European and North American companies in the GCT100 had at least one Asia-based investor. Two years later, in the 8th edition, that has risen to 34.
