The inaugural MB100 leaders were curated through a rigorous nomination process, led by an expert panel of 12 judges. The platform received over 500 peer nominations, from more than 50 countries, with each one scored across four key areas: leadership, innovation, scope and durability.

Our goal is to create a unified platform for these leaders to collaborate and share knowledge in order to amplify their social impact in support of the UN 2030 agenda.”

“I am so honored and proud to be included on the Meaningful Business list for 2019. Sustainability has been a guiding star throughout my entire career, and I feel privileged to work for a company that wants to make a difference. This is yet another thumbs up to our sustainable solutions based on the power of good bacteria,” says Annemarie Meisling.

The 100 business leaders represent 40 countries, including the UK, US, India, Nigeria, Indonesia, Germany, Switzerland, Ghana and Brazil. Industries that dominate the list include technology, retail, energy, education, waste management, food & beverage and agriculture.
