Costa Mesa, Calif. (PRWEB) March 31, 2010
Remarx Media Inc., the business-to-business conversation starters, has been granted small-business corporate social responsibility (CSR) certification from 10% Solution (http://www.10percentsolution.com). Like the Good Housekeeping seal of approval or other international organizations for standardization, the 10% Solution certification designation ensures that qualifying companies meet rigid standards for corporate giving in three key areas: volunteerism, philanthropy and green sustainability.
“We try to infuse CSR elements into our day-to-day business, and this certification measures our efforts,” said Cara Stewart, principal, Remarx Media. “Plus, we can show our clients that third-party CSR certification should be part of their corporate marketing initiatives to enhance brand equity and drive increased revenue.”
To earn its certification, Remarx Media demonstrated its adherence to 10% Solution’s strict formula measuring CSR commitments:
- Financial — The agency commits 1 percent of total sales to philanthropic giving. This year, Remarx Media is focusing on Mercy House, which provides homeless prevention, emergency services and housing to homeless men, women and children in Orange County and the City of Ontario.
- Volunteerism — Remarx Media employees volunteer with nonprofit organizations an average of one hour per week.
- Sustainability — The agency maintains green certification appropriate to its industry and location.
“A company that seeks our certification is one that cares about the world and is responsive to customers’ demands,” said Jamie Welsh, founder and president, 10% Solution. "Research shows that consumers choose to work with companies that demonstrate a social return on investment (SROI) strategy. Remarx Media’s certification is an expression of its SROI activities, and we’re proud to have them as part of our roster of certified companies.”
