BetterWorld Telecom - Sustainable & Responsible Business of the Week

BetterWorld Telecom (Reston VA) is a telecommunications company providing voice and data solutions for businesses and organizations with social and sustainable missions. They offer local calling, long distance, high-speed Internet, conference calling, and VoIP services for businesses and organizations. Jim Kenefick and Matt Bauer began BetterWorld Telecom in 2003 and their website states, "We are passionate about helping causes that support social justice and the environment."

The company donates 3% of revenues (administered by the BetterWorld Charitable Foundation) to nonprofit organizations through grants that help children, education, fair trade, and the environment. Their goal is to donate $1 million per year by 2012.

BetterWorld Telecom is striving for a paperless operation. When paper usage is necessary, it is 100% recycled or tree-free kenaf paper. The company is also carbon-neutral through a combination of "web-based infrastructure, environmental offsets and proactive environmental policies."

BetterWorld Telecom seeks to "Change the World. One Call at a Time."
