MAYO Web Design + Marketing Service has been documenting our journey toward B Corp Certification over the past year. Earlier this month, we got the good news that the company had earned certification and we were joining the many esteemed companies around the world using business as a force for good.
In our official press release, MAYO Founder and Creative Director Carrie Mayo noted there’s been a continued increase in the number of companies seeking B Corp Certification for the accountability it brings.
“We’ve been thinking about ways to serve the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit for some time now, and wanted to find a way to advance this philosophy in a more comprehensive and transparent way,” she said.
B Corp: More Than a Certification
Here at MAYO, we look at the B Corp certification as a continuation of the work we’ve been trying to do for some time–aligning quality services, talented people and a commitment to values rooted in that triple bottom line. We’re dedicating time to community service, have committed to 1% for the Planet, and are continuing to serve clients who see sustainability as a core value.
In a recent NH Business Review Q&A with Carrie, she said she was initially drawn to B Corp when she saw how similar the standards were to the company’s values.
“It was like we found our family,” she said. “Through the process of certification, we were exposed to new areas of improvement and ways to focus on aspects we had not focused on before. It didn’t just recognize what we had done, but drove us to do better.”
And that’s where we see ourselves as a company in the year ahead and beyond: striving to do better. To us, it represents an important milestone on the path toward building a world where the global economy works for the benefit of others.
While our journey toward B Corp Certification is complete, our commitment to the values that got us here will continue. We plan to use this space to highlight other companies working as a force for good, as well as provide inspiration and advice for any company thinking about starting their own BCorp journey. We hope to see you along the way!
