127 Mission Statement Examples From Companies Changing The World

June 18, 2020 | Sean Foo

Mission statements distil what a company does, how, and why.

When written well, they can inspire customers and employees to be loyal to you!

Nowadays, however, many mission statements are stuffed with corporate-speak like “provide value”, which feels hollow at best and repels at worst. 

The best company missions state clearly what the company does, and why.

They have 1 main focus, have at most 16 – 20 words, and state promises the company actually lives up to.

To give you an idea of how they look like, here are 127 great mission statement examples from companies that are changing the world!
