Empowering Ideas


A positive shift begins with innovation. The most promising cleantech companies today bring products and processes with great potential. When they have guidance and resources, they realize this potential and make notable environmental and social strides.

With the right support from VertueLab and our partners, their technologies will successfully reach the market—and customers will purchase and deploy these cleantech products and processes. The result? Fewer emissions, cleaner water and air, food security, preserved habitat, stable global climate, and improved quality of life for everyone. The growth and success of these new products and companies moves us closer to a future where everyone can survive and thrive.

Featured Companies:

 

Columbia Green Technologies

Columbia Green Technologies is a pioneering manufacturer of vegetative greenroof systems. Their products offer multiple benefits to urban environments: creating beautiful urban habitat, reducing urban energy consumption, and improving quality and quantity of stormwater runoff.

 

 

ESS

ESS is a leading innovator in the large scale energy storage systems that enable the transformation of electrical grids to eliminate the use of fossil fuels. Their batteries store the intermittent energy from wind and solar farms to make it available when consumers need it. Their redox flow batteries feature their non-toxic, non-hazardous, completely recyclable iron-based electrolyte for safe, reliable, and environmentally conscious energy storage.


 

DR JOHNSON

D.R. Johnson Wood Innovations is the first U.S. company to manufacture certified, structural Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) panels. These products can be used to minimize the amount of concrete, a major culprit in greenhouse gas emissions, used in high-rise building construction. Cross-laminated timber is an engineered wood building system designed to complement light- and heavy-timber framing options.


 

The Renewal Workshop

The Renewal Workshop is a new kind of business where tons of clothing and textiles are diverted from landfills and made into renewed apparel, upcycled materials and recyclable feedstock. They partner with major consumer brands to recover value and reduce waste.  By providing a whole new way to deal with product returns and minor defects, The Renewal Workshop demonstrated a viable business model that can relieve the growing size and negative impacts of landfills.


 

INDOW

Indow is a socially conscious manufacturer of energy efficiency products that make old windows in old buildings perform with modern levels of renewable energy efficiency. Their products use innovative laser measurement technologies and proprietary energy saving inserts to cost-effectively retrofit the massive stock of old buildings. Their inclusive hiring practices have also provided manufacturing jobs to a diverse urban workforce.
