Iknow LLC renewed its support for 1% for the Planet for 2018. Iknow donates 1% of sales to approved environmental nonprofit organizations.
“We work alongside our 1% for the Planet partners to create a healthier economy and planet for all,” said Dr. Bernard L. Palowitch, Jr., President of Iknow. “Our consultants often travel the world to provide knowledge management consulting and systems implementation services to our clients. Our carbon impact can be quite high. We joined 1% for the Planet because we want to offset this impact. 1% for the Planet provides Iknow with a credible way to support nonprofits that are working to solve environmental problems.”
About 1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We recognize that the current level of environmental giving—only 3% of total philanthropy—is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
Through our business and individual membership, 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 our network.
Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, our members have given more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits to date. Today, 1% for the Planet is a network of more than 1,400 member businesses, a new and expanding core with 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.
