This year, the Hot 50 marked the entrance of a number of strategic investors and large caps into the Hot 50 – notably, Cargill at #36, Waste Management at #42, Chevron at #48, and Monsanto at #49. Fully four of the eight new companies in the Hot 50 were strategics.

Overall, the list of strategics doubled. last year, oil majors dominated with ExxonMobil, Shell, BP Biofuels and Petrobras.
