World Centric Named A Real Leaders® Top Impact Company

World Centric Real Leaders Impact Award WinnerROHNERT PARK, CA – For the fourth consecutive year, World Centric is proud to be named #48 of 200 Top Impact Companies for 2022. This award by Real Leaders®, the world’s first sustainable business and leadership magazine dedicated to inspiring better leaders for a better world, recognizes leading social impact businesses around the globe. Other 2022 award winners include game-changers such as Patagonia, Ben & Jerry's, Miyoko’s, and dozens of other well-known brands.

Nominated companies are ranked based on their “Force For Good” score: 3-Year Growth Rate x Revenue x Impact Score. The 200 Top Impact companies chosen are applying capitalism for greater profit and greater good, driving a dynamic segment of the economy, and bearing a new vision of business that demonstrates that every transaction is an opportunity for growth and a better world.

“Making a positive impact has been at the core of World Centric from day one, from the products we create to our support of communities around the world through our giving program,” said Mark Stephany, World Centric’s Senior Vice President of Sales. “To be named a Top Impact Company by Real Leaders for the

fourth year in a row is an honor that helps us drive World Centric’s mission even further.”

Real Leaders is a signatory of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and works with impact leaders — including those on its 200 Top Impact Companies list and beyond — who are taking actions to achieve the 17 Global Goals.

“We cannot wait for politicians to solve the world’s problems,” says Mark Van Ness, Founder of Real Leaders. “Leaders in our everyday lives, including business leaders, are stepping up to fill the leadership void through their impact companies to benefit society. Beyond our mission to elevate the next generation of sustainably minded leaders, using agricultural waste in our magazine is another progressive way we can contribute to big change,” added Van Ness.
