SF&G joins 1% for the Planet

News item first posted on: 01/08/23

We are pleased to announce SF&G has joined 1% for the Planet as an environmental partner! 

1% for the Planet is a global network with thousands of businesses and environmental organisations working together to support people and the planet. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, their members have given hundreds of millions of dollars to environmental partners to date.

Through 1% for the Planet, businesses around the world commit to donating at least 1% of their annual sales to organisations who are working for the benefit of people and the environment, with missions that span across a wide range of impacts, from ensuring vulnerable communities have rights to land to reducing the environmental impact of cities.

1% for the Planet seeks non-profit partners that are tackling six big environmental issues: climate, food, land, wildlife, water, and pollution. SF&G was proposed as a partner by Susie Hewson MBE, Founder and Director of Natracare following our recent partnership with them, and Natracare have also become our first 1% supporter by making a generous donation towards our work – thanks Susie!

Organisations who are already signed up to donate their 1% can now support SF&G in this way and view our profile page.

“The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the world’s problems”

Yvon Chouinard, co-founder of 1% for the Planet.
