BusinessCloud can reveal its EnviroTech 50 innovation ranking for 2023.

Readers of the online technology publication and an independent judging panel have together decided the 50 companies blazing a technology trail in green technology.

The EnviroTech 50 – supported by digital transformation experts Sputnik Digital – celebrates businesses of all sizes creating original technology for use in green energy, to protect the environment and boost sustainability.

Dsposal, a compliance-focused digital waste tracking platform, tops the ranking. The Manchester-based company works with clients including Defra, ReLondon and the NHS and envisages a world where all waste is treated as a resource.

IPG, which has developed a green replacement for diesel generators in difficult-to-decarbonise industries, is second. The London firm – backed by academic institutions, government agencies and pioneering manufacturing and commercial partners – has patented Flameless Combustion technology to guarantee access to clean, on-demand power from any fuel.

LettUs Grow (Bristol), Iceotope (Sheffield) and Greyparrot (London) complete the top five.

Also featuring on this year’s ranking is Solivus. The London company creates lightweight solar solutions for large commercial buildings such as warehouses and sports stadiums where conventional solar can’t be used due to weight or application restrictions.
