Given our focus on sustainable and inclusive ways of working and strategic work product, we have joined 1% for the Planet, making a commitment to donating 1% of our annual sales to support organizations focused on the environment.
By weaving sustainability and inclusivity into the very core of how we work and the solutions we produce, we are on a mission to revolutionize organizations and their experiences such that we drive increased value not only for the businesses and brands for whom we work, but for their constituent and customer communities, and for the world at large. By joining 1% for the Planet we hope to inspire others to make more meaningful, more mutually valuable decisions, and likewise, to take similar, world-centric actions.
Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of business members are doing vital work to increase giving and support on-the-ground action. We're excited to welcome Material to our global movement.
By contributing 1% of their annual sales, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised millions in funding to support environmental partners around the globe. Partners are vetted and approved based on referrals, track record, and environmental focus.
