The modern technology sector includes companies providing free services that users find valuable. In our current world, access to internet search, maps, messaging, and digital media are essentially positive byproducts. This represents a lot of value beyond profit. Comcast Corp. has earned a spot in our top 100. Notable sources of positive value are Economic Value ($32.8 B), Internet Search ($26.6 B), and Email ($12.9 B). Economic value comes from offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. Out of all the companies we have analyzed, Comcast Corp. is in the top ten for Email. Downsides for this company are associated with Greenhouse Gases (-$1.3 B). Economic Value, Internet Search, and Email are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Greenhouse Gases are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners.
