We attribute considerable positive value to Procter & Gamble’s impact on Hygienic products ($276.2 B), Healthcare R&D ($28.4 B), and Economic Value ($19.5 B). Companies that offer hygienic products receive a positive Humankind Value in our research as these products extend life expectancies by reducing the burden of infectious disease. The company produces economic value by 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. With respect to the Hygienic products category, Procter & Gamble is our top company. In the Hygienic Products category, its positive Humankind Value includes the impact of an estimated 5,731,187.11 additional life years worldwide. However, there is room for improvement as Greenhouse Gases (-$6.1 B) and Air Pollution (-$4.9 B) from Procter & Gamble have a significant negative impact. Hygienic products, Healthcare R&D, Economic Value, Greenhouse Gases, and Air Pollution are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities.

How the Humankind Value Methodology Drives the Rankings

We take a quantitative, data-driven approach to estimating the economic impact that companies have on investors, customers, employees, and society at large, rolling social responsibility into a single dollar value that we use to represent what a company is contributing to humanity. As far as we can tell, we're the first ones doing it this way.
