As reported on the Investment & Pensions Europe website, Innovest has launched a new Nanotechnology Index that addresses risk and risk perception:
“The index is designed to identify companies that are contributing to a better understanding of the risks, but committed to delivering benefits from nanotechnology in medicine, clean water and energy, says Innovest…
“Innovest has reviewed around 200 public and 100 private companies for ‘qualities that we feel will be appropriate in offsetting potential perception risk and in contributing to responsible nanotechnology development’, it says.”
Companies currently on the list include: Altair Nanotechnoloogies, ApNano, BASF, Biosante Pharmaceuticals, FEI Company, General Electric Company, Headwaters, JMAR Technologies, Lumera Corp, Nalco Holding Co, Plug Power, Spire Corp, Starpharma Group and Veeco Instruments. See also the press release.
