1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet represents a global network of businesses, individuals and environmental partners tackling our planet's most pressing environmental issues.
Since 2002, 1% for the Planet has helped to direct hundreds of millions of dollars to Environmental Partners around the world.
What is 1% for the Planet?
1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses to support environmental solutions through annual memberships and everyday actions. Put simply: they bring people together to increase smart environmental giving.
While there are many ways to give back, 1% for the Planet also provides opportunities through the business membership program, which garners additional value and opportunity to those committed to supporting our planet.
Here’s how it works:
- Join: Business members join the network, committing to donate the equivalent of 1% of gross sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind and approved promotional support directly to Environmental Partners.
- Advise: 1% for the Planet provides partnership advising, pairing members with Environmental Partners that align with their values, their brand and that make the biggest impact possible.
- Donate: Business members support their Environmental Partner(s) directly.
- Certify: 1% for the Planet certifies all member donations—legitimizing members’ commitment by reviewing and confirming sales and donation details annually.
