January 26, 2022, Campbell, Calif. - ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CHPT), a leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, was named by Cleantech Group a 2022 Global Cleantech 100 Graduate of the Year for becoming a publicly traded company in the Energy, Power and Mobility category.
Graduate of the Year awards are made up of Global Cleantech 100 alumnus companies that had the most impressive public offerings in the previous year. Alumnus companies are those that have been featured on any of the Global Cleantech 100 lists published since 2009. ChargePoint appeared on those lists seven times between 2010 and 2017, including as “Future Mobility Company of the Year” in 2014 before being “retired” to the organization’s “Hall of Fame” in 2018.
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 the world from commitments to actions in global efforts to reach net zero.
“It’s an honor to receive such prestigious recognition from the Cleantech Group for our commitment to green mobility,” said Pasquale Romano, President and CEO of ChargePoint. “ChargePoint is proud to be recognized for being the first publicly traded electric vehicle charging company operating across continents, and for the momentum we are driving in global electrification.”
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 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.
“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.”
