CSR Press Release

1% for the Planet Announces Latest New England Member Companies

Sugarbush Resort’s Timbers Restaurant Leads Diverse Set of Companies Committed to Environmental Stewardship

Submitted by: 1% for the Planet

Categories: Philanthropy & Corporate Contributions, Environment

Posted: Oct 04, 2012 – 03:31 PM EST

 

WAITSFIELD, VT, Oct. 04 /CSRwire/ - Vermont-based 1% for the Planet announced today that 21 new companies from the New England region have joined the network so far in 2012. Members of 1% for the Planet contribute 1% of annual sales directly to approved non-profit organizations. Non-profits are approved based on referrals, track record and sustainbility focus and currently over 3,000 non-profits worldwide are eligible to receive donations. 

”The growth of our New England network shows the continued strength of our business-movement as a force for positive change,” said Barbara Friedsam, 1% for the Planet’s New England Network Director. “Our member companies are using business as a tool to engage customers and change behaviors while directly addressing environmental challenges in the region."

“Given that our business operates in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest, Sugarbush Resort has a special responsibility to help preserve and protect our ecosystem and minimize the environmental impacts of doing business,” said Win Smith, President of Sugarbush Resort. “Our efforts have included the use of biodiesel, waste diversion programs, composting initiatives and long-term water quality restoration projects, which have been lauded by the EPA as a ‘success story.’ Sugarbush’s 1% For the Planet membership through the Timbers Restaurant is a further step towards committing more resources to environmental causes outside of our company, and we are looking forward to our partnership with 1% for the Planet and seeing the impacts of these additional investments.”

“As we enter our 10th anniversary year we’re celebrating that our members have contributed nearly $100 million of critically needed funds to grassroots environmental organizations,” said Terry Kellogg, CEO of 1% for the Planet.

There’s a paradigm shift happening here. The combined revenue growth of the companies in the 1% for the Planet network from 2009 to 2011 was over 20%, even though the overall economy has been struggling. The understanding that brands can succeed financially by investing in the environment is apparent, and consumer demand is driving a lot of this success.

Partnering with the Jessie B. Cox Charitable Trust has allowed us to focus on New England and we’re beginning to see results right here in our backyard. We are thrilled to see the momutum as 1% for the Planet members put the power of their brand behind investment in regional environmental innotatives,” said Friedsam.
