Jio is ranked ahead of pharma giant Merck and Bank of America.
Reliance Jio, the telecom unit of Mukesh Ambani, has been ranked as the top company globally on Fortune’s ‘Change The World’ list. The list ranks companies using the profit motive to help the planet and tackle social problems.
In the list, Jio has been ranked ahead of pharma giant Merck and Bank of America. While Chinese group Alibaba is at number 5, the food and drug stores Kroger is ranked 6th on the list. The industrial machinery firm ABB is at number 8 and network and communications giant Hughes Network System at number 10.
Fortune said, “If access to the Internet is a basic human right — and the United Nations declared it one in the summer of 2016 — then Reliance Jio deserves more credit than most for expanding access to it”.
