About the List

First published in 2015, the Fortune "Change the World" List spotlights the top 50 companies who address major social problems as a core part of their business strategy and innovation. The Shared Value Initiative and our parent organization, FSG, serve as research partners on this list and are seeking company nominations for 2016. To be considered for the 2016 "Change the World" list, please fill out the nomination form above and a member of the Shared Value Initiative team will be in contact.
Companies (501c3 organizations will not be considered) with $1Bn+ in revenue will be evaluated on 3 essential criteria:
1. Measurable contribution to societal impact
2. Scale of business results
3. Degree of innovation relative to the industry


Fortune, FSG, the Shared Value Initiative, and Michael E. Porter of Harvard Business School will seek and review nominations for the 2016 list, which Fortune's journalists will report and vet. Fortune editors will conduct the final selection and ranking of companies based on all reporting, expert recommendations, and analysis provided.
