Toronto (April 13th, 2021) Green Standards has been recognized as part of The Financial Times list of The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2021. This prestigious award is presented by The Financial Times and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies list is comprised of the enterprises that contribute most heavily to economic growth. 500 companies are featured on the list, which was announced online on April 13, 2021 and can currently be viewed on the FT website.

Out of the millions of active companies in North and South America, only 500 firms were named, and Green Standards is ecstatic to be recognized again as one of The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies 2021 after appearing on FT’s list in 2020. For the second straight year, Green Standards ranked in the top 250 companies. Green Standards also ranked second overall in the Waste Management and Recycling category, fortifying its position as industry leaders.

How It Works

Green Standards is a specialized environmental firm that works with companies across the globe to responsibly redistribute no-longer-needed surplus office furniture, equipment and supplies in a manner that benefits both the environment and the community. These excess materials are donated, resold, or recycled based on their condition, which limits the environmental impact and has allowed thousands of nonprofits to upgrade their space through the donation process.
