Terrabiom joins 1% for the Planet® as Environmental Partner

Updated: Dec 19, 2022


Breaking news: Terrabiom has been approved to join 1% for the Planet® as Environmental Partner. This makes supporting our work easier, more transparent, and more impactful. We are proud to be joining this leading global network of like-minded individuals, businesses, donors and Environmental Partners working together toward a common goal: protecting the future of our planet.

 

We are so excited to announce that we have officially been approved as Environmental Partner with 1% for the Planet®. This brings us one great step further on our journey to achieving our mission: to regenerate our lands, communities, and our ecosystems.


Officially assessed & listed

To be listed as an approved Environmental Partner means that Terrabiom underwent a strict Partnership Assessment where our organisation and work were checked against the official Eligibility Guidelines and judged eligible to receive funding from our members. Motivated by our friends at Patagonia Partner Store Zürich earlier this year, we are proud that we met the strict Guidelines!

Terrabiom's main impact contributes to the following 1% for the Planet® categories:

About 1% for the Planet®

1% for the Planet® is a global organization that exists to ensure our planet and future generations thrive.


1% for the Planet's mission is to accelerate smart environmental giving, with a big promise: The opposite of greenwashing. 1% for the Planet

It inspires businesses and individuals to support environmental partners through membership and everyday actions. It makes environmental giving easy and effective through partnership advising, impact storytelling and third-party certification.

Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, business members and individual members have given hundreds of millions of dollars to approved environmental partners to date. Today, 1% for the Planet’s global network consists of thousands of businesses, individuals and environmental partners working toward a better future for all.


The idea is simple: because companies profit from the resources they take from the Earth, they should protect those resources. 1% for the Planet

The organisation is built on the following pillars:

  • 1% for the Planet accelerates smart environmental giving.

  • 1% for the Planet works to prevent greenwashing, certify reputable giving and provide accountability for environmental giving.

  • Why 1% of annual sales? For businesses of any size, 1% of sales—not profits—is a real and substantial commitment. You can always give more but you should never give less than 1%.

  • Currently, only 3% of philanthropic giving goes to the environment. Our planet needs more support and the 1% for the Planet® network is on a mission to change that.

  • The 1% for the Planet® membership model drives critical philanthropic support to address the most urgent environmental issues of our time.
