Top 100 low carbon pioneers

Three Norwegian companies has been included in the CNBC’s magazine European Business yearly list of  “The Top 100 Low Carbon Pioneers”. They are Norsk Hydro (aluminium production), Rec Group (solar energy) and Statoil (oil). Statoil and Hydro have merged their oil and energy business, and they are called StatoilHydro.

I think the list is a good idea, and I wished a Norwegian publication could follow up and produce a list of the Top 20 Low Carbon Pioneers in Norway. I’m sure there would be several surprises and more exciting start up projects. I was surprised to find Statoil and Hydro on this list, since they are also among the biggest polluters in Norway.

Here are a few other interesting companies from the list: Iberdrola (nr.1, renewable energy), Abel and Cole (organic food store), Biogasol (second generation bioethanol).
