1% for the Planet is a global organization that accelerates smart environmental giving. We are motivated by our recognition that the current level of environmental giving—only 3% of total philanthropy—is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet. 1% for the Planet inspires people to support environmental organizations through annual membership and everyday actions. We advise on giving strategies, we certify donations and we amplify the impact of the network.
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $265 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 3,000 member businesses, a growing community of hundreds of individual members, and thousands of nonprofit partners in more than 60 countries. Our headquarters are located in Burlington, VT with staff located around the world.
At 1% for the Planet, our passion is fueled by the urgency of the environmental crisis and our belief that collective action will drive positive change. Every day, we strive to be our best selves by owning our individual and collective responsibilities with professionalism. We deliver with excellence through collaboration, transparency and relentless dedication, which is reinforced by structures that connect vision, values, purpose and strategy to annual, quarterly and daily tactics. The scope of our mission results in change and ambiguity—we work effectively in this context, taking risks and reorienting to better solutions. Leadership reinforces prioritization, execution, and bringing passion and why to our work, as well as the need for whole lives and life-long learning. We are one team, with one shared vision.
We’re a friendly bunch of hardworking individuals (plus, Kaia, our office dog). We love the great outdoors, and whenever someone brings baked goods into the office. Check us out!
We are proud to call Vermont our homebase. Headquartered in Burlington, Vermont, we are steps from magnificent Lake Champlain and surrounded by our favorites: stunning natural beauty, endless opportunities for recreation and fun and unbeatable local fare.
As a global organization, many employees work remotely, and we value their dedication to growing their respective regions. Because of them, area members get the service they deserve and our regional hubs and steering committees can flourish. Plus, our remote positions need not feel left out from experiencing Vermont’s splendor as they can look forward to reuniting with the team at annual staff retreats!
It can be described as caring with a strong environmental ethic. We’re proud to be based in a state that has been at the forefront of efforts to fight climate change, implement renewable energy systems and embrace sustainable development.
