Ecometrica has been named on the prestigious Deloitte 2017 Technology Fast 500™ Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) list, following a year of rapid growth and important developments. It caps a year that has seen Ecometrica post record sales and profits, win awards for the Ecometrica Platform, its environmental accounting, sustainability management and satellite mapping technology, as well as build on its partnerships with NASA and the UK Space Agency.
With a growth rate of 226%, Ecometrica confirmed a spot on the prestigious list, which is a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in EMEA.
Paul Sallomi, vice chairman of Deloitte LLP and global technology, media and telecommunications industry leader, said: “Innovation is more than technological advancement; it’s also a state of mind”.
This year’s winners were selected based on percentage fiscal-year revenue growth from 2013 to 2016.
Gary Davis, chief executive of Ecometrica, said: “With important new agreements with NASA, the UK Space Agency, and our partners in the commercial and academic worlds, 2017 has been a great year for Ecometrica. It is very satisfying to see adoption of our technology growing and the Ecometrica Platform being used to tackle a variety of operational and environmental challenges facing business. Being named on Deloitte’s Fast 500 is the icing on the cake.
“We more than doubled our R&D budget this year, so we are investing now in technologies that will keep our growth rate high for years to come.”
Ecometrica posted a profit rise of 381% in its last financial year, turnover of around £2.6m, and the Ecometrica Platform scooped Environmental Leader’s Product Of The Year Award for the second consecutive year.
Founded in 2008, Ecometrica’s formidable story derives directly from the vision of its founding members and leadership – executive chairman and Nobel Laureate Dr Richard Tipper, chief executive Gary Davis and chief product officer Bertrand Revenaz.
