From Strategic Creativity Events to Electric Transportation Services

 - Jun 13, 2013
This top list explores global social businesses, from strategic creativity events to electric transportation services. Of course, what's featured here ranges in industry, size and also the extent to which they adhere to the triple bottom line. Some focus more on the environmental side of things and others on socially oriented actions, while some are a bit more transparent in their product promotion. The location of their home base also varies, which, in the end, tells a lot about its story already and what the vision is -- and could be.

Of these global social businesses: Matter Inc., a design-focused brand, and others tand out for their creative approach to social problems, even if they don't seemingly fit into social entrepreneurship.
