Ecogate was awarded the CleanTech Business Award at this year’s “Go Global Awards”, presented by The International Trade Council (ITC)!
This year the business world’s Oscars, “Go Global Awards”, was held in Tallinn, Estonia, making it the first time in 30 years that this international event takes place in a Nordic country. The conference and evening gala brought together hundreds of senior executives from the world’s most innovative manufacturers, producers, and exporters, along with representatives from government bodies, trade associations, venture capital firms, and financial institutions.
Industrial Energy Efficiency
For over 20 years, Ecogate has been helping manufacturers all over the world optimize their electricity consumption. Our technology has saved the planet 2 million tons of CO2, for reference, Tesla has contributed 4 million tons saved.
We’re honored to have been awarded in Estonia, a place where innovative technologies that impact the world are highly championed. This CleanTech award not only corroborates our efforts until now but also encourages us to keep helping manufacturers achieve industrial energy efficiency.
“The competition in every category was very high. There was no shortage of big ideas or smart solutions presented at this event. I believe that the decision to award us this honor was influenced by the fact that the Ecogate solution is available now and is being enjoyed worldwide by hundreds of Ecogate customers. People want to know how to save 60% from their industrial electricity use today.“ - Richard Melrose, Ecogate Vice President
About Go Global Awards
ITC’s Go Global Awards celebrate organizations that drive the global economy through their innovations, technologies, and strategies.
The Go Global Awards follow a rigorous three-tiered review/selection process. Candidates begin the application process with a prescreening/ranking phase. The top 20% of nominations across all categories are then cross-reviewed to ensure consistency. Finalists are then selected and move forward to the live judging event, where they present before independent members of the Go Global Awards Committee. The Awards Committee then cross-reviews the finalist presentations and the final decisions are announced at the Go Global Awards Day.
The Awards bring together hundreds of senior executives from some of the world’s most innovative manufacturers, exporters, technology firms, international service providers, venture capital firms, and financial institutions. While the Go Global Awards offer the opportunity to be recognized and honored by their peers it also goes beyond winning trophies and citations. The program aims to build a community of senior executives from across the globe to support one another, share ideas, create partnerships, and build on their existing knowledge and connections.
Estonia as Enterprise Estonia
Estonia is hailed as the world’s most advanced digital society (via Wired magazine). The legislation is transparent and built to help businesses grow and not hinder progress with red tape. In the brand new International Tax Competitiveness Index 2022 Estonia has gained the highest ranking in the world.
99% of public services are online. To establish a company it takes 15 minutes and to file taxes only 3. This has resulted in Estonian companies growing and exporting products and services to over 120 countries. “Today, the only reasons a citizen needs to show up in person are to get married, divorced, or to exchange property. Everything else can be done online,“ summarized James York, the head of the judging panel of the “Go Global Awards“ and Director of US Business & Innovation at Enterprise Estonia.
“Probably many delegates got the inspiring kick in Tallinn from the fact that Estonia has the most startups, unicorns, and VC investment per capita in Europe. As of today there are 10 unicorns, but the aim is to have 25 unicorns by 2025,“ - James York
Estonia is a small country - only 1.3 million people live there - but there are already close to 100,000 e-residents and more than 20% of all new companies created in Estonia are by e-residents. Today, over one-fourth of startups are created by e-residents.
