Clevest contributes to the BC Cleantech Status Report
British Columbia’s cleantech sector has grown in the last three years as the world looks for sustainable solutions to address climate change and environmental risks. As a member of the BC Cleantech community, Clevest contributed to a new report on the sector produced by KPMG in Canada.
The BC Cleantech Status Report found revenue in the sector jumped to $2.4 billion in 2019, up from $1.8 billion in 2016. Overall employment in the sector climbed to 16,300, with over 9,600 based in the province and the number of companies grew to 293 from 273. The report also found that companies in BC have raised over $7 billion in investment since inception, an increase of nearly $3 billion from the 2016 Status Report.
“British Columbia is home to the largest clean tech sector in the country,” says The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change. “This report confirms Canadians are succeeding in building a thriving, prosperous, export-oriented clean tech industry. The Government of Canada is proud to support these important innovations, through the investment of over $3 billion – which ensures we are effectively supporting companies and projects in the transition to a clean economy.”
