I enumerated three categories: "free", "free but depends on non-free",
"non-free". Which of those categories are you saying "will be listed
as GBN friendly companies"?

One possibility: To highlight those businesses that already have
laudable practices ("free"), to show businesses that we feel are
progressing in the right direction ("free but currently depends on
non-free"), and contrast them against those who currently have no
actual progress in that direction ("non-free").
