We are very pleased and proud to announce that Beyond the Edge has been accepted to join the environmental network 1% for the Planet.
1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses and individuals to support environmental solutions through annual memberships and everyday actions.
We have committed to donating the equivalent of 1% of our gross sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind and approved promotional support directly to local environmental nonprofits.
This is an audited scheme and 1% for the Planet certifies and legitimises our commitment by reviewing and confirming our donation details annually.
This follows on from our annual audit and renewal of our Peak District Environmental Quality Mark – https://www.beyondtheedge.co.uk/peak-district-environmental-quality-mark/
1% for the Planet was founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard and his company Patagonia became the first business to commit 1% of annual sales to the environment.
1% for the Planet network consists of over 3,000 businesses and individuals that contribute to environmental nonprofits in over 90 countries. To date, 1% for the Planet has directed over $250 million to these grassroots organisations.
