The article presents 50 businesses and individuals who have successfully incorporated social responsibility and global awareness into their profit-driven company. The number sixteen spot is occupied by Native American energy company NativeEnergy for its efforts in financing clean-energy projects such as wind farms and solar generators. Individuals and businesses can assist in the process by contributing a sum of money equivalent to the amount of carbon dioxide emissions that they produce. For example, drivers of sports utility vehicles (SUVs) would contribute $96 yearly to offset those carbon emissions.
