Duke of London (DOL) Pledges 1% of all sales to Environmental Causes
GOLD COAST, QUEENSLAND, 20 August, 2021 – Duke of London joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment.
“We are thrilled to be a member of 1% for the Planet. Making small changes can have a long and lasting impact over time. We are committed to embracing that journey, one step at a time, to ensure ours is a contribution to a better and healthier future for generations to come”
Members of 1% for the Planet contribute one percent of annual sales directly to any of the approved nonprofit environmental organizations in the network. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
"Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of business members is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on-the-ground outcomes. We're excited to welcome Duke of London to our global movement," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
