Hi Community, I shared with one of our fellow portfolio companies how our company (Force Management) has taken the 1% pledge. They are currently considering taking the 1% for the Planet pledge, but are curious about taking the Pledge 1%. Are there any companies who have taken both the Pledge 1% and 1% for the Planet? If so, we're curious as to why you did both.
Hey there! I just wanted to chime in and say that Pledge 1% isn't exclusive. If a company wants to take a 1% for the Planet pledge, become a BCorp or more, that's all great news! Many of our members are part of multiple giving back efforts. The more good we can all do, the better.
I have gone through the process but decided to step back. I find it very weak on triage and on their own operations, most fee goes to their company rather than actual impact
I do both and donate 1% of revenue to 1% for the planet and 1% of time (volunteering) and 1% of product (pro bono consulting) to Pledge 1%. I am also a certified B Corp. So yes, the more, the merrier!
Thats fab! did you know that the money given to 1% for the planet is for them to run (operations, promotion etc) rather than impact results for example to protect land?
