In his introduction to the list, Fortune Executive Features Editor Matt Heimer explains that the original guiding principles of the Fortune Change the World list were that the creative tools of capitalism made business uniquely suited to solving social problems, and that bigger businesses would be better suited to take on that task. He writes: “Seven years later, we’re just as firmly com­mitted to the first principle. The second? A little less so. On our inaugural list, six of the 51 companies we recognized had annual rev­enue of $1 billion or less. This year, in our eighth edition, 18 out of 54 have less than $1 billion in revenue, and nine of those are currently venture-backed startups.” Read more.

PayPal is the first featured company on the 2022 Fortune Change the World list, included for their response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The Fortune editors write: “PayPal has moved an enormous amount of badly needed money. Through late September, its customers raised more than $600 million through PayPal Giving for relief efforts in Ukraine. It has also helped Ukrainian citizens receive and send another $330 million in person-to-person payments and money transfers. And PayPal has tallied almost 300,000 new Ukrainian account sign-ups since the war began. Someday those may become paying customers, but that’s a question for a more peaceful day: PayPal is waiving all money transfer and remittance fees through Dec. 31.” Read more.
