The ranking looks to highlight emerging Canadian companies whose innovation leaves them poised to be the market leaders in the transition to a global clean economy.
Selected from a pool of 5,115 Canadian public and private companies, the Future 50 represent the 25 fastest-growing publicly traded companies (as measured by year-over-year revenue growth %) and the 25 fastest-growing privately owned companies (growth % in capital raised from their two most recent funding rounds) that earn more than 50% of their revenue from clean energy sources. The list includes companies from a number of different sectors providing tangible examples of how a net-zero economy can create an abundance of new opportunity.
“Our company’s commitment to sustainable products and practices has been a point of pride since we started as Organic Garage,” stated ORAGIN CEO Matt Lurie. “We have always focused on operating in the most environmentally friendly way possible and are proud to have been recognized by the Corporate Knights for that conscious choice.”
