Mondo Mediaworks becomes a Certified B Corporation

Originally published in The Commons issue #409 (Wednesday, May 24, 2017).



BRATTLEBORO—Mondo Mediaworks recently announced that they’ve become a Certified B Corporation. Mondo joins over 2,000 B Corps world wide, including fellow Vermont companies like King Arthur Flour, Ben and Jerry’s, Cabot Creamery, Seventh Generation, and Green Mountain Power.

Certified B Corporations are companies that meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

Since forming in 2010, Mondo’s core mission has been to support long-term economic development in the Brattleboro community and the greater Vermont region. They do this by providing high-quality, livable wage jobs, by supporting local businesses and nonprofit colleagues, and by volunteering in the community.

“Mondo aspires to be a force for good in our area,” explains Luke Stafford, Chief at Mondo Mediaworks, said in a news release. “Joining the B Corp movement was a natural choice, and helped us define our commitment to Brattleboro’s local economy. We’re excited to connect with the wider B Corp community and we hope to bring on some fellow B Corps as clients in the coming years. ”

Mondo scored significantly above the median scores in the governance section, workers section, and community section. Some of the programs that got Mondo their certification include their employee fitness program, company-wide volunteer program, and flex-time policy. While completing the B Corp certification, they also examined their client list and discovered that well over 50% of their clients are local businesses and nonprofits.

In 2017, Mondo plans to increase employee volunteer hours and is currently looking to form partnerships with local nonprofits. They’ll also continue tracking their environmental impact, using the systems they put in place, including an electricity use monitor.

Based in Brattleboro, Mondo Mediaworks is a digital marketing agency that provides high-quality services to their clients, including digital advertising, social media management, email marketing, video production, and website development. Mondo specializes in the hospitality industry and is proud of its large base of local business and nonprofit clients.
