Corporate Knights has been following cleantech companies since 2007, and highlighting the companies poised to make it big. The CEOs of the Cleantech 10™ and Next 10 opened on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Also announced today via a Corporate Knights magazine, which is
distributed as a quarterly insert in the Globe and Mail and Washington Post,  was news that Corporate Knights has closed an investment round with a prestigious group of investors led by Vancity Community Capital.
This private investment will allow Corporate Knights Inc. to launch a new division, Corporate Knights Capital, which will leverage Corporate Knights rankings to create a global suite of clean capitalism- themed passive investment products tailored to meet large investor needs.

The Corporate Knights Cleantech 10™ was compiled by Corporate Knights Inc. and Cleantech Group LLC, the leading provider of Cleantech indices and information globally.

The Cleantech 10™ list was created by Rafael Coven, Managing Director and Index Manager of The Cleantech Index (CTIUS;, which underlies several Index-based funds such as the PowerShares Cleantech ETF (NYSE:PZD), and is the first and only index to cover cleantech companies across a broad array of industries.
