OneMama is a GameChanger 500 World’s Top For-Benefit Business


GameChangers 500 profiles the world’s top For-Benefit businesses that are focused on maximizing benefit to people and the planet, rather than just maximizing profit-at-all-cost. Considered an alternative to lists like the Fortune 500, GameChangers 500 looks beyond revenue as the “point system” and awards organizations up to 9 badges for using business as a force for good. The badges cover a spectrum of best practices, including the organizations commitment to a clearly defined mission (purpose-first rather than profit-first), the positive impact of their products and services, and how they treat people and the planet in the process of running their business. Among the top 500 are socially and environmentally conscious leaders like Patagonia and TOMS, mavericks of workplace culture like Zappos and Virgin, as well as innovators like Tesla Motors and IDEO. Although the majority of the top 500 are based in North America and Europe, more than 25 countries are represented with some of the top performers representing countries such as Brazil, Malaysia, and India.

The research behind GameChangers 500 started in 2011 and has evolved with support from organizations like the U.N. University for Peace, Harvard University and the FourthSector Mapping Initiative.  To ensure the organizations that make the cut are the ones truly worthy of the praise, there is no fee to qualify.
