DENVER (February 28, 2017) — Scream Agency, a full-service creative, advertising, public relations and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) storytelling agency who has serviced the outdoor industry for 20 years, announced today that the Agency has now earned a Certified B Corporation® status.
Scream Agency joins a global movement of 2,000 Certified B Corps across 120 industries in 50 countries with one goal – to redefine success in business by being a force for good™. The Agency is in good company with other certified B Corps in the outdoor industry including Patagonia, Cotopaxi, United By Blue, OluKai, and Miir – all whom helped inspire the agency to undergo the B Impact Assessment.
Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. The certification dovetails well into the timing of the Agency’s 20th anniversary this year inspiring a new tagline: Be seen. Be heard. Be good.
“Being good has always been part of our brand DNA,” explained Founder Lora Ledermann. “Scream Agency has been proud partners of the outdoor industry since 1997 and it was important to us to reach for this new B:Corp standard and put our purpose and mission to ‘be good’ to work. More brands need to step forward with CSR initiatives to make a bigger impact for our people and planet. Hopefully we can help more companies to join us in this B:Corp movement.”
Over the past 20 years, Scream Agency has worked with a number of outdoor brands including Sierra Designs, Nalgene, Mountainsmith, Optic Nerve, Sherpani, Polar Explorer Eric Larsen, Toad & Co., Ollydog, Pearl Izumi, Ultimate Direction, Redfeather Snowshoes, Havana Joe Shoes and Wolverine Worldwide.
