1% for the Planet Certification

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.

Hi Lindsey, thank you for the feedback. That was the immediate feedback I shared with our fellow portfolio company, so I appreciate you validating what I initially thought.

Hiya C, 

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?
