Two Amadeus companies, GreenRoad and AMEE are included in the 2010 Cleantech 100, unveiled this afternoon in New York.
GreenRoad, in which Amadeus first invested in 2008, provides sophisticated technology and services to maximise driving safety and energy efficiency for drivers and fleet managers. The company is headquartered in Redwood City, California, with offices in the UK and Israel. Last month, East Yorkshire Motor Services, the UK’s largest independent bus operator, chose to deploy GreenRoad 360 across its fleet of 280 buses. Also in September, Securitas Mobile, introduced to GreenRoad by Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk adviser, announced that it would be deploying GreenRoad 360 across its new fleet of Peugeot 207 cars.
Amadeus invested in AMEE earlier this year. AMEE is a UK- and US-based company, which has codified the major greenhouse gas standards, together with their computational models and emission factors, into an engine available to clients via a web-based Application Programming Interface (API). AMEE’s search engine also enables discovery of greenhouse gas standards and emission factors, while tracking provenance and providing a full audit trail for carbon accounting practitioners. Customers include vendors of carbon accounting or business intelligence software, governments (including DECC in the UK), multi-nationals and SMEs needing to measure emissions.
Commenting on the two companies’ rankings, Amadeus Partner, Richard Anton, said: “Our congratulations go to GreenRoad and AMEE for achieving listing in the 2010 Cleantech 100 – no mean achievement from an initial list of over 4,500 candidates from all over the world. The increasing profile of this annual listing underlines the growing importance of the cleantech sector and the importance of venture capital to support innovation in this area.”
