Technology Pioneers 2011: Empowering People and Transforming Society
The Technology Pioneer class of 2011 is giving consumers and businesses more control over their impact on the environment in other ways. For the first time since the World Economic Forum launched its Technology Pioneers Programme 11 years ago, the number of clean tech companies equals the number of information technology companies. This is no accident, the pressure to become more energy efficient has never been greater for businesses, not just because of regulatory concerns but because like consumers, businesses want to be seen as socially responsible.

Technological advances that allow an unprecedented level of collaboration and cooperation in real time mean that acting on that information has never been easier.
