Business can be a force for good and here’s the proof: 100 companies that are growing by doing good.

The Real Leaders 100 Top Impact Companies, in collaboration with Big Path Capital and B Lab, is the first ranking of positive impact companies. The Awards rank the top companies applying capitalism for greater profit and greater good. These companies are driving a dynamic segment of the economy, bearing a new vision of capitalism that demonstrates that every transaction is an opportunity for both growth and a better world.

Given the plethora of published lists that already exist – the richest people, sexiest celebrities, fastest growing companies, biggest organizations or most popular startups – a group of like-minded visionaries including Real Leaders, realized that what the world really needs is a list of companies that are a force for good in the world. Not a feel-good, cumbayah, granola list either; rather, a list of real companies that have shown actual economic growth by including the greater good in their mission and business strategies.

The Real Leaders 100 Top Impact Companies is exactly that – a world-first list that proves that business can thrive as a force for good. So, how did we ultimately measure business as a force for good? We came up with a simple formula. If you’ve ever studied science you’ll know that the formula for force is mass multiplied by acceleration. The Real Leaders 100 formula for Business as a Force For Good is therefore: Revenue X Growth Rate X B Impact  Assessment = Force For Good. We hope you’re inspired by the companies featured here and apply in 2019 to be internationally recognized for our next Real Leaders 100 Top Impact Companies list.
