1% for the Planet
FSC is a new nonprofit partner of 1% for the Planet, an alliance of over 1,380 member companies in 43 countries that give one percent of revenues to environmental causes.
FSC is now eligible to receive donations from 1% member companies, placing us among a diverse, global network of environmental organisations. 1% member businesses fuel this non-profit network through their annual contributions, which totaled over £14 million in 2010. Partnership with 1% greatly expands the potential pool of funding which FSC can use to support young people to discover explore and understand more about the natural world.
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder and owner of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% exists to raise the bar for corporate philanthropy and to encourage more giving to nonprofits focused on issues of sustainability. 1% exists to certify that each business fulfills their 1% commitment and to see that those donations are going back to the planet via 1% nonprofit partners.
