Jan 19 2009 | 9:41am ET

Jürgen Habichler, founder and president of the board of directors of fund management firm Cleantech Invest AG, was named a “Green Hero” of 2009 by CNBC European Business magazine. The title is given to individuals for their contribution to an environmentally friendly economy and society.

'This award is a great honor for me,” said Habichler. “At the same time, it is a strong endorsement and incentive for me and my whole team to continue and further intensify our activities in the field of renewable energy, environmental and climate protection, despite the current economic crisis.”

Habichler, whose fund was the first cleantech fund listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, has been active as founder and investor for more than 14 years. With an MBA from the Wharton Business School, he joined Atlas Venture in 2004, and was key in setting up Atlas' cleantech activities. Since 2007, he has been involved in his own venture capital activities within Mountain Cleantech AG, the management company of Cleantech Invest.

Cleantech Invest, headquartered in Switzerland, is a publicly traded private equity vehicle focusing on clean tech. The fund invests in established, high-growth companies in the renewable energy and environment and climate-protection industries.
