For each company, we review all publicly available information to assess a company’s efforts or activities to give back to the community and adopt sustainable practices. We conduct over 200 decision points for each company as we cross check against our Give Back and Sustainability Criteria. We consider each company’s story, history, mission, and certifications. To ensure comprehensive review, we cross check information with other publicly available databases.
Based on each company’s give back and sustainability activities, practices, and efforts, we calculate a Medal Ranking of Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. We adopted the medal ranking to reflect the often long, long journey towards creating complete social good. We know how deeply hard it can be, and how this pathway to achieving complete social good can take years. With medal ranks, we recognize and encourage all enterprises’ efforts and accomplishments every step of the way. We review each company’s achievements in three categories: giving back, sustainability, and social good.
