What do you get when you mix a lot of hard work and a mission to make the planet more sustainable? We find ourselves named a 2021 Global Cleantech 100 Company by Cleantech Group.
The 100 companies on the list represent the private, independent and for-profit companies best positioned to contribute to a more digitized, de-carbonized and resource-efficient future.
Parity was selected from more than 8,312 nominations from over 80 countries.
The fact is, the environment is crumbling around us. Parity and its staff are on a mission, arm-in-arm with the other 99 companies on this list, and the innumerable climate advocates and innovators around the world, to create tangible change for the climate. We are certainly proud to be recognized but we are even more proud that our expertise and technology, and the building partners we work with, have helped prevent more than 8.9 million pounds of CO2 emissions since our inception.
The technology we create, the partnerships we secure, the staff and team we continue to grow, are all important pieces of the puzzle helping advance our collective climate goals.
On that note, this excerpt from the Cleantech Group 100 List Report is an important reminder about why this list and the mission it represents, matters:
“The inconvenient truth is that the problems being tackled by these 100 companies and the hundreds of others beyond unfortunately have a timer attached to them. That timer is monitoring whether humanity … proves able and willing to pull back from the irreversible destruction of the very environment…
As we enter the last quarter of , my sobering conclusion is that we are clearly not winning. We need a remarkable turnaround – and fast. Human ingenuity and innovative spirit are match-fit for the herculean tasks ahead. Our innovation community can be a great contributor, but we cannot do it alone in the time available. To roar, these 20s need people in power to act with urgency and intent. Our leaders must have long-term vision and the conviction to face up to vested interests, naysayers and doubters.”
- Richard Youngman CEO, Cleantech Group
This award is a proud moment for Parity but, more importantly, serves as a rallying cry to us and others to continue to commit to and encourage the inventions, ideas and solutions that can help support the long-term wellness of our environment.
Congrats to all the fellow companies on this list and thank you to the Cleantech Group for this recognition.
