1% for the Planet Sustainability
Putting people and the planet over profit
1% for the Planet represents a global network of businesses, individuals and nonprofit organizations tackling our planet's most pressing environmental issues. Our membership model drives critical philanthropic support to address the most urgent environmental issues of our time. Our network exemplifies the power of collective action as we bring together individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations around the world to support people and the planet. When we all work together, 1% adds up. 1% for the Planet was founded to prevent greenwashing, certify reputable giving and provide accountability. The 1% for the Planet certification is given to businesses and individuals that meet our high-bar commitment—donate 1% of annual sales or salary to environmental causes. We recognize that we cannot solve the climate crisis without recognizing the disproportionate impact of environmental issues. We exist to ensure that our planet and future generations thrive. However, achieving this goal requires a multi-faceted approach that addresses both environmental and social justice.
