The GREENTIE Directory
- the supplier database of greenhouse gas mitigating technologies

The Directory database contains information on over 9,000 suppliers around the world whose clean energy technologies help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Additionally, the Directory also contains entries on a range of leading international organisations and IEA programmes whose RD&D and information dissemination
activities centre around clean energy technologies.

All Directory entries are screened using defined quality criteria before being added to the master database. These entries are then classified according to a list of 105
technologies. This list, developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), targets priority technologies that are economically viable and have
world-wide potential for lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Each entry contains contact details, an organisational profile, and a technology and products and
services classification. The technologies are grouped into the following categories: fossil fuel, nuclear, renewable, energy-transfer, industrial, buildings and
transportation technologies, agricultural and forestry practices, and other waste technologies.

Accessible to all information users

If you do not have Internet access, the GREENTIE Directory on diskettes for Windows, or the Directory on CD-ROM for Windows, is available at no charge from

free of charge and will keep you up to date on Directory and participating country news.
