Gradiant, a solutions provider and developer for cleantech water, was named 7th in the Real Leaders ECO Innovation Awards 2022 for firms creating positive environmental impact, and received a Great Place to Work award for its Singapore headquarters and Global Tech Labs.
Why was Gradiant recognized?
The Real Leaders ECO Innovation award honors global companies applying innovative environmental solutions for the greater good. It is an annual global ranking of companies that drive environmental impact in all major sectors of the economy. Gradiant ranked 7th in the world for its proprietary Carrier Gas Extraction (CGE) technology that was used to deliver sustainable water solutions for a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical brand owner in Singapore.
Gradiant’s CGE process effectively mimics the rain cycle to treat industrial wastewater using thermodynamic processes and resulted in a 96% water recovery rate and up to 30% capital expenditures and 40% operating cost savings compared to competitor technologies.
Gradiant Singapore was named a Great Place to Work for 2022-23, chosen from anonymous employee surveys. Great Place to Work is an independent research and consultancy, and its certification process considers over 60 elements of the job experience.
Eighty percent (80%) of employees at Gradiant say it’s a great place to work, compared to only 53% of employees at a typical Global company. 88% said they felt a sense of pride in their work, and 86% believe management is honest and ethical in its business practices.
What were the executives’ thoughts on the awards?
“Our company was built with the purpose of solving the world’s most important water challenges,” said Prakash Govindan, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Gradiant.
“Singapore is our regional headquarters and home to our Global Technology Labs, a one-of-its-kind where our engineers translate innovations from bench-scale to commercialization.”
“We are honored to have our innovation culture recognized in these awards and remain committed to fostering a work environment in which team members partner with our customers to do the best work of their lives. Thriving employees increase business performance and create market-leading customer experiences,” Prakash concluded.
“Our awards from Real Leaders and Great Place to Work are a testament to the innovation culture and sustainability impact of Gradiant,” said Anurag Bajpayee, Co-Founder and CEO.
“The culture of Gradiant is inspiring, and I couldn’t be prouder of our team. This status reaffirms our position as an employer of choice, creating differentiation and a positive work experience for our teams worldwide. We look forward to furthering our workplace culture and employee experience efforts using the data from the Great Place to Work survey,” he added.
