For the second consecutive year, Green Standards is proud to have placed among Canada’s Top Growing Companies. With a three-year revenue growth of 279%, Green Standards has earned it’s spot as No. 166 on the 2020 rankings.

It is a voluntary program where companies complete an in-depth application process in order to qualify. In total, 400 companies made the ranking this year.
“The stories of Canada’s Top Growing Companies are worth telling at any time, but are especially relevant in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “As businesses work to rebuild the economy, their resilience and innovation make for essential reading.”
The full list of 2020 winners, and accompanying editorial coverage, is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online at tgam.ca/TopGrowing.
Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 400 businesses on this year’s Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies,” says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Their growth helps to make Canada a better place, and we are proud to bring their stories to our readers.”
