This year, we became members of the global movement for change, 1% For the Planet. Looking after our planet is a lifelong commitment, and we'll be joining in with many initiatives over the coming years.
We're committed to changing the way we work and to review the relationships we have with our partners to ensure they share our values.
1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through annual membership and everyday actions. Members have given more than £300 million back to environmental nonprofits since 2002.
As a member of 1% for the planet, we pledge to give 1% of our revenue to the approved non-profit organisations focused on environment change. This money goes directly to the non-profits we have chosen as our partners. In reality, we actually give more than 1% but the number is arbitrary – it’s a promise to donate this amount as a minimum each year, to ensure the future for of our planet and the generations to come.
The foundation of the 1% for the Planet network is this member-nonprofit partnership, which encourages members to engage directly with their non-profit partners, providing financial donations, volunteer time, other in-kind donations and more, offering long-term support for these organisations to deliver greater impact for the good of mankind.
