About Fortune's annual Change the World list
Fortune's annual Change the World list is intended to showcase the power of capitalism to improve the human condition by identifying companies that have made an important social or environmental impact through their profit-making strategy and operations. Companies are ranked on each of four criteria: measurable social impact, business results, degree of innovation and corporate integration.
Each year, Fortune looks for new companies with recent impact. The initial solicitation and assessment of nominees is conducted in partnership with the Shared Value Initiative, a global platform for organizations seeking business solutions to social challenges, and FSG, a nonprofit social-impact consulting firm. A team of journalists from Fortune then investigate each of the candidates independently. The final list is selected and ranked by the editors of Fortune based on the magazine's own reporting and analysis.
