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

Two companies landed on a total of six lists, while eight companies made it onto five. This year’s full Blue Ribbon list is below.
