To qualify for Fortune’s Blue Ribbon list, a company must have appeared on at least four of our nine most rigorous annual rankings in the prior year: the Fortune 500, Fortune Global 500, 100 Best Companies to Work For, Future 50, Fortune 500 Europe, Change the World, World’s Most Admired Companies, 100 Fastest-Growing Companies, or Most Powerful Women.

Twelve companies landed on five lists, and 43 additional companies made at least four appearances. This past year’s full Blue Ribbon list is below.
