About GreenStep

We have a dream.

To become the company most known for improving the social, environmental, and economic performance of small and medium sized enterprises.

GreenStep was founded in 2008 to help businesses and organizations tackle a common challenge: most owners and managers want to do more to reduce their environmental impacts and be responsible; but with competing priorities, they often lack the time, knowledge, and budget to make meaningful progress. 

That’s where GreenStep comes in. Our people are your sustainability guides; walking beside you on your sustainability journey, offering guidance, expertise, and building capacity each step of the way. 

To date, we have worked with thousands of businesses and organizations in Canada and globally, within several sectors, including private, public, non-profit and academic institutions; in a variety of industries such as tourism and hospitality, retail, professional services, and manufacturing; and with organizations of all sizes, from owner-operated businesses to publicly traded companies. 

We practice what we preach. GreenStep has been a Certified B Corporation since 2015, and we’re powered by 100% renewable energy with Bullfrog Power.

Each year we use our sister company, EcoBase Carbon Software, to measure our carbon footprint. The carbon emissions we can’t reduce, we offset, and GreenStep has been carbon neutral since 2011.

GreenStep has taken Canada’s Net Zero Challenge, is a signatory of the Glasgow Declaration, and we have set a science-based greenhouse gas reduction target, following the Science-Based Reduction Targets initiative (SBTi) SME Pathway. 

As such, we have committed to measuring and reducing our Scope 1, 2, and 3 Carbon Footprint. We have set a near-term target to reduce our Scope 1 and 2 carbon footprint by 100% by 2030, and to achieve a 90% reduction in our Scope 1, 2, and 3 carbon footprint by 2050.

Our Carbon Footprint Report and Climate Action Plan to achieve these goals can be found here.
