The Forbes Global 2000 is a comprehensive list of the world’s largest, most powerful companies, as measured by revenues, profits, assets and market value as of April 6, using data from FactSet Research Systems. We weigh the four numbers equally to come up with a composite score. Not included are employee- or cooperative-owned entities such as Huawei of China and Fonterra of New Zealand. Companies structured as limited partnerships, such as some large private equity firms, are excluded for accounting inconsistencies.
