The Fortune Global 500 is a ranking of the top 500 corporations worldwide as measured by revenue. The list is compiled and published annually by Fortune magazine.

Until 1989 it listed only non-USmarker industrial corporations under the title "International 500", while the Fortune 500 contained and still contains exclusively US corporations. In 1990, US companies were added to compile a truly global list of top industrial corporations as ranked by sales. In 2005, more than 450 of them were headquartered in Europe (195), the United States (176), and Japan (80).

Since 1995, the list has had its current form, listing also top financial corporations and service providers by revenue.
