The second-annual elite GoingGreen 100 list is compiled by the AlwaysOn editorial panel. To be eligible for the GoingGreen 100 list, companies must be peer-nominated, with AlwaysOn receiving hundreds of nominations from venture investors, investment bankers and other industry experts.
"The AlwaysOn GoingGreen 100 companies will accelerate the global movement to a more sustainable environment," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn.

Intrago's Local Vehicle On Demand technology offers a simple and efficient way to obtain right-sized, zero-emission vehicles for short trips.

"Intrago technology enables automated locking, charging and rental of small electric vehicles such as electric bicycles, scooters, Segways and even small electric cars," said David Goldschmidt, Chief Marketing and Operating Officer, Intrago Corporation. "Our markets for Intrago personal electric vehicle systems include university and corporate campuses, transit links, urban communities and resort and leisure destinations, among others."
"It is a great honor for Intrago to be recognized by AlwaysOn's editors, and be included with other emerging leaders in clean tech," Goldschmidt said.
