We are incredibly excited to announce that Clubmate has joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organisations focused on the environment.
“Everything Clubmate does is aligned to improving our communities and environment,” said Owen Chapman, Founder of Clubmate. ”In our view, there is no greater cause than working together to support and protect our home – our Planet. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy sport, especially fishing!”
Members of 1% for the Planet commit to supporting approved environmental nonprofit partners by donating the equivalent of 1% of sales through a combination of monetary, in-kind, and approved advertising contributions. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. There are thousands of approved nonprofits worldwide.
Collectively, 1% for the Planet Members have donated more than $175 million to environmental nonprofits to-date.
“We are thrilled to welcome Clubmate to our global network,” said Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. “Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. We need more business like Clubmate to do its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes.”
