Frequently Asked Questions

Companies will be ranked based on their “Force for Good” Score. The formula for Force is velocity x mass (we use your Growth rate x Revenue). If the applicant has not taken the B Impact Assessment, a default score will be applied derived from an average BIA score of the applicant pool. This provides the “Good” score. The Force for Good Score is the product of your 3-year sales growth % x 2020 revenues x the B Impact Assessment or default score. 
 
Example: A company had $1 mm in sales in 2018 and $4 mm in sales in 2020 and had a score of 85 on the BIA. The Force for Good Score would be ($4-$1)/$1 * $4 * 85) = 1020.
