Cleantech 2.0: How New Technologies are Promoting Environmental Sustainability
All the vital news, analysis, and commentary curated by our industry experts.
The new-found interest around environmental technologies, dubbed cleantech 2.0 emphasizes taking more sustainable approaches to save the earth as it is dealing with a slew of pressing problems such as climate change, mass extinction, and depleting natural resources. From decarbonization to hydrogen production, technology is increasingly put into practice to save the planet. This report sheds light on how startups and the environmentally responsible companies are adopting such solutions in order to encourage innovation and pace transformation.
What are the market dynamics of cleantech 2.0?
Decarbonization technologies are gaining momentum to cut down CO2 emissions from the use of fossil fuels and develop carbon-negative products. Innovative alternatives such as novel meat proxies, insects, and new protein sources are also gaining popularity. Simultaneously, some companies are producing lab grown dairy products that have the potential to transform the food industry. Moreover, Battery manufacturers are exploring sustainable ingredient alternatives to offer electric vehicle (EV) developers with cleaner sources of energy that could save the planet from the toxic outputs of the conventional internal combustion engines.
Environmentally aware energy producers are considering hydrogen as an effective and efficient energy source and therefore the demand for its production is growing. With a focus on negative carbon emissions, they are formulating innovative gasification technologies to harness hydrogen that could save costs and complexities, while making distributed energy from waste projects possible.
What are the key use cases of cleantech 2.0 to tackle climate change?
Human activities have led to global warming primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels that traps greenhouse gases like CO2 in the earth’s atmosphere. To fight the catastrophic climate change, conscious businesses are developing decarbonization solutions across major CO2 emitting sectors. The key use cases of cleantech 2.0 to fight catastrophic climate change are carbon capture, carbon recycling, carbon trading, climate analytics, green building, green networking, green chemistry, Nat Cat management, net zero carbon, and sustainable transportation.

Reasons to Buy
- No surprise that technology has been a driving force in business transformation for years, but the term ‘emerging technologies’ has all of the sudden become the key catalyst to drive the next wave of innovation across sectors.
- The sense of urgency weighs different across different sectors, where the direct customer-facing sectors are at the forefront compared to other capital-intensive sectors. Companies in one sector can take cues from successful innovations in other sectors to either draw analogies with existing products, services, and processes or transfer strategic approaches for a revolutionary transformation.
- Against this backdrop, enterprises need to understand which emerging technologies are impacting their sector and how various companies are implementing them to meet various challenges.
- The innovation landscape report in power, published by GlobalData as part of an ongoing series, covers some of the key trends, use cases, and real-world examples related to the implementation of emerging technologies across the power sector value chain.

GlobalData Analytics and visualisation solutions has contributed positively when preparing management presentations and strategic papers.”
Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk
“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods
Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.
I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.
I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.
Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan
“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.
Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”
Senior Account Manager, TSYS
GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise. The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.
I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.
One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
