It’s good to see Fortune taking this on. Note that the focus here is on companies deliberately using profit-oriented business models to tackle societal and ecological challenges.
Fortune says this list is not meant to be an ethical compass or a ranking of companies’ social responsibility. It is a ranking of companies that have made significant progress in addressing a major global social or environmental problem as part of their core business strategy. Each demonstrates that “business in pursuit of profit still offers the best hope of addressing many of mankind’s most deeply rooted problems.”
Good catch, Simon Robinson.
