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.
Beyond the Edge Ltd is based in Sheffield: two hours by train from London and within easy travelling distance from Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham and other Northern towns and cities.
We are one of the UKs most experienced providers of climbing, walking, scrambling, mountaineering and navigation training courses.
Most of our courses are run in the nearby Peak District National Park which has some of the finest climbing, bouldering, walking and hiking in the world.
