BPLG was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
"It is an honor to be recognized among these distinguished global companies as a GoingGreen winner," said Pete Londa, CEO of BPLG.

"Picking this year's GoingGreen Global 200 was a very competitive process, as literally dozens of great greentech companies are emerging out of the pack, raising big money, and gaining significant market traction," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we've seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the greentech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming."
The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international greentech technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and greentech industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
