Yunus ranked 3rd at Salt Magazine’s Top Business Leaders


A new publication called Salt, published from United Kingdom (UK) motivated by the hope that businesses will play a key role in shaping a better world, has released its first Top 100 Compassionate Leaders List. Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank, Nobel Peace Prize recipient and pioneer of microcredit rated #3 in Salt Magazine’s list of the top 100 Compassionate Business Innovators. In its citation, Salt Magazine said “Yunus regards credit as a vital human right, and has given millions of people access to the banking system”.
First and second on the list are: Paul Polman and Richard Branson. Among those prominent in the list are: Bill Gates, Arianna Huffington, Larry Page , Ted Turner, Warren Buffett, Tim Cook and Elon Musk among many others.
The list considered sustainability, innovation, compassion and impact — and mostly features names you’ve come to expect on such a list. Individuals were evaluated based on their demonstrated leadership in terms of renewable energy, resource conservation, agriculture, and social and economic sustainability. Additional criteria included whether they had pioneered ideas within their industry, created a company that transcends the standard business paradigm, and how many lives they have changed.
Previously In 2008, Professor Yunus was rated #2 in Foreign Policy magazine’s list of the ‘Top 100 Global Thinkers’ and in 2012 Yunus was named by Fortune Magazine as one of 12 greatest entrepreneurs of the current era.
