Scream Agency hopes to inspire brands to be a change for good.  By sharing stories about brands that create impact and change both in our businesses, communities and world, we know the “be good” message will spread. Our creed is to make it contagious.

We are a group of strategic storytellers with a purpose for good. We use our expertise of marketing, branding, public relations, social media, digital/web and corporate social responsibility to help find a brand’s purpose and story, both in messaging and visuals. At the heart of everything we do is our drive to create positive change.

To search out purpose every day. To be seen. To be heard. To be good.

20 Years of Scream


The evolution of Scream Agency

After 20 years in Denver of public relations, advertising, design, serving the community, and making clients “be seen and be heard”, Scream has reflected on our core values and dedicated the next 20 years to bringing our true passion to the forefront. To be good.

Recently certified in the CSR profession through a program at the University of Colorado, Scream Agency will focus on creating real change while encouraging and empowering businesses to take the steps toward being better for the world. Walking the walk, Scream Agency is launching their official “Scream Serves” program where employees are paid 20 hours per year to serve in the community.

We’re still the same creative, ad, PR and digital agency you’ve grown to trust and love. But now, you’ll see even more love and purpose in what we do. We believe that business can and should be a force for good by finding CSR in the heart of what they do. The more brands we have authentically sharing their story about the change they are making, the more the ‘be good’ influence will spread.

Sustainability in our Workplace


Greening of Scream

Scream Agency encourages all employees to be good stewards for our environment and our community. We participate in Xcel Energy’s Windsource program and offset 100% of our electricity usage from this renewable energy. We recognize the importance of protecting the environment and will minimize the environmental impact of work practices carried out by our organization.

Our environmentally sustainable work practices include:

Transportation

Our team utilizes environmentally friendly multi-modal means for transportation (over 35% of our team uses biking, walking, lightrail and ride share daily). We track our usage on Way to Go: https://mywaytogo.org.

Reduce

We use goods which stop waste from being generated; reduce waste by choosing products that have minimal packaging and can be used productively and then recycled.

Re-use

We re-use containers, packaging or waste products, wherever possible.

Recycle

We recycle waste material into useable products, wherever possible. We have removed the garbage cans by our work desks and home computers and replaced them with recycling bins/boxes so that we think about recycling before throwing things away.

Energy Usage

Everyday we remind ourselves to:


  • Turn off our computers or put it in sleep mode both at our desks and at home.

  • Unplug computers, lights and devices from the wall when not being used for charging.

  • Replace lightbulbs to compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) when needed.


Vendor Sustainability

Scream Agency works with local vendors, suppliers and partners whenever possible. We screen our providers (particularly printers) to review the types of environmental and social impact practices that are in place (i.e. recycled paper, soy inks, recycling efforts, fair labor practices, and more). From the supplier diversity perspective, we encourage the use of minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, LGBTQ-owned, Small Business Administration (SBA)-defined small businesses.

Our CSR Goals

This year our three CSR initiatives are to reduce waste, conserve energy and increase low emission transportation. We have set benchmarks from 2016 and hope to decrease the benchmarks by 10% in 2017.
