The Organization

JUST Capital a nonprofit organization that is the leading platform for measuring and improving corporate performance in the stakeholder economy. Our mission is to build an economy that works for all Americans by helping companies improve how they serve all their stakeholders – workers, customers, communities, the environment, and shareholders.

Our flagship product is America’s Most JUST Companies, which is an annual ranking of companies in the Russell 1000 Index. The top 100 companies – or the JUST 100 – are published annually through our partnership with Forbes.
