We’re very proud to announce at Elephant Creative that we have become a member of 1% for the Planet. This means that we donate 1% of our annual sales to help protect the environment. This is part of a pledge, as an agency, to be a responsible business and move towards B Corp Status.
1% for the Planet connects businesses, consumers, and not-for-profits, empowering everyone to drive big, positive change. Their mission is to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet.
The organisation began a little more than ten years ago when a mountain climber and a fisherman realised how important the natural environment was in keeping them in business. Now a global movement with over 1200 members in 48 countries, 1% for the Planet companies have given more than $100 million back to the planet.
Being a member of 1% for the Planet means a lot to us. It gives us the opportunity to highlight our status as a responsible business and to work alongside amazing businesses across the world that care about the environment like we do.
It looks likely we’ll be partnered with some fantastic charities helping to protect elephants and work to stop the decline of elephants in the wild (you might have noticed, we rather like elephants!).
