As part of Cleantech Export Week 2018, Export Development Canada (EDC) has recognized five Canadian cleantech companies as enterprises to be observed, including two companies focused on conserving water and improving water management.

EDC stated that the five companies, whose technologies and business strategies have successfully taken their products beyond Canada’s borders, stand out, because of their dynamic solutions to climate change, waste and water management, and feeding a growing population while contributing to the Canadian economy.

“Canada has a great reputation for developing innovative clean technology. The companies we are recognizing today know the potential that lies outside our borders and understand the challenges Canadian cleantech companies face getting there,” said Carl Burlock, senior vice president, Global Head Financing and International Growth Capital, EDC. “By sharing the stories of these outstanding organizations, we hope other potential exporters will be inspired by their success to begin their own export journeys.”
