About The Meaningful Business 100 (MB100)

Now entering its sixth year, The Meaningful Business 100 champions business leaders, globally, who are driving companies and initiatives aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Comprising social entrepreneurs, CEOs, corporate sustainability leaders and impact investors, the MB100 cuts across sectors, geographies, role types and SDGs, to champion outstanding individuals solving the biggest issues we face today.

Delivering much more than congratulatory recognition, the year-round MB100 programme, supported by EY, Hogan Lovells, Babson College and innovision, is designed to help increase the winners’ positive impact and scale, by providing access to a range of pro-bono services, investment opportunities, potential customers, capacity building resources and a global community of peers.


Nominations are now open for the sixth edition and deadline for submissions is Monday 1st July 2024.
