Many of us want to find purpose in the job we do and who we’re working for. If you’re seeking an opportunity to make a difference—or at least work for an employer who wants to make the world a better place—one of these companies might be your ideal fit.

All the employers on this list are trying to make the planet better in their own way. For some of them, solving social or environmental issues is part of their core DNA, whether they’re reducing food waste (DIG) or fighting climate change (Esri). Others, like Allstate, have taken on additional social responsibility and sustainability initiatives outside of their own business objectives to leave the world a better place than how they found it.

Read on below to learn more about these amazing companies and see what roles they’re trying to fill.
