Blue Fuel Energy is proud to announce that our Chair and CEO, Juergen Puetter, has been awarded Canada’s Clean50 and Clean16 awards for 2017. These awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams, from 16 different categories, who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years.

“Delta’s criteria in determining Honourees is to carefully consider actual measurable accomplishments, demonstrated innovation, collaboration with other organizations, and the power of the Honouree’s contribution to inspire other Canadians to take similar action”, notes Delta Management CEO Gavin Pitchford.

“Juergen Puetter was chosen after rigourous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice from internal researchers and external advisors, and was among Honourees  selected from an initial pool of over 500 well qualified nominees.

“The Clean50 come from such a broad array of backgrounds, such that only a few individuals are able to be recognized within any given category. To receive a Clean50 award is truly indicative of both industry and personal leadership in the Renewable Energy category.

“The process to narrow down to just 50 Honourees this year was extremely difficult—the great news is that there are many wonderful and committed leaders in organizations across Canada, working in many different fields, who are concerned about the course of Canada’s future if we don’t all take action quickly. These individuals are rarely waiting for regulations to drive their organizations forward—but are leading by example and harnessing sustainability as a force for innovation within their organizations. The individuals we chose for the Clean50 this year are true leaders, and should be an inspiration for all Canadians.”

As for the Clean16 award, Pitchford explains that, “The 2017 Clean16 are truly the leaders of the leaders in sustainability in Canada. The competition for the top spot this year in every instance left us with many great choices—and to be selected from amongst such a strong group of peers is truly a testament to the contribution Juergen Puetter has made to helping make Canada more sustainable for all Canadians.

“The cumulative accomplishments of Canada’s Clean16 over the past 2 years adds up to a very big number. All Canadians should be grateful for the leadership these individuals have shown—and for the support that their organizations have provided.”
