The Clean50 Summit 8.0 takes place Thursday September 27th, in Toronto.


PLEASE ! Read the FAQ tab on the Clean50 website before you begin. It will help you avoid common mistakes.

SECONDLY: The data you enter here lives forever in our database and is hard to correct later. Spelling mistakes and typos in names, titles, company names - they are your responsibility. Every year someone objects to being Ms. Peter Smith or Mr. Patricia Jones. Or Petel Smuth. or Patecia Jonrs. This core data in the database is much harder to correct than anything else. So - PLEASE take special care in providing accurate names, titles, company names etc.. All need to be entered IN EXACTLY THE WAY you would want them to appear in the Globe and Mail, press releases, publications and on the Clean50 website. ANSWERING IN ALL CAPS - OR in all lower case - will also really mess us up - so please! - don't do that! Especially important for names, titles and company names etc.

DEADLINES SET: The deadline to have been nominated is JULY 1st.. Anyone nominated by then has until 10 AM July 4th EDT to complete this LONG form (or a week from the date they are notified of their nomination, whichever is the later date).

One key reminder from the FAQs

** Will the form expire?

Once you start, there is no time limit for completing the form (beyond the deadline date). Simply ensure you keep it open in your browser until complete. If you make an error you will be able to edit it, even after submission, by emailing us an update.

Do NOT press the BACK button / back arrow on your BROWSER or REFRESH your browser. You will lose all of your entries! Use only the "back button" on the form, at the bottom of each page on the form.
Pressing the Back ARROW in the navigation box on your web browser, or using your BACK arrow near or part of your numeric keypad ERASES ALL THAT YOU HAVE TYPED WITHOUT WARNING.

In some cases, if you have configured your backspace key to be the same as the Back Arrow, it will do the same. As this is actually a GOOGLE doc form filler, managed by Google, we have no control over this feature. If this happened to you we are so very sorry!

Instead, to go back, you should only use the BACK BUTTON at the BOTTOM of each PAGE, on the FORM. Repeat NOT YOUR BROWSER BACK BUTTON or ARROW, or the "back arrow" key.

If you need to make a correction or amend your response, please email us the changes - although Google theoretically allows you ONCE YOU HAVE SUBMITTED to edit the responses. - To be safe, complete your response BEFORE attempting to GO BACK. When you do so do not use the browser arrows - use the "back" button at the bottom of each section page.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND EDITING YOUR RESPONSE IN WORD BEFORE SUBMITTING - and then cutting and pasting into the form. That way if something goes wrong with the form, you will still have the information to cut and paste back into the document. A Word version of the questions can be obtained by sending us an email to

If you wish to ask questions please contact us via email: or via telephone: Gavin Pitchford; 416.925.2005 x 2300. We are VERY approachable! If you need help or clarification, please don't hesitate to call or send an email to
