GoodWell Certifies 1% for the Planet


Jul 13, 2017

Big news! 

1% for the Planet is the first nonprofit member organization to achieve GoodWell certification. 1% for the Planet is a global member network with thousands of businesses, nonprofits, and individuals who contribute 1% of their annual sales or income to environmental causes.

"The 1% for the Planet mission is focused on building a global movement for a healthier planet, and we believe that how we do this work matters,” said Kate Williams, 1% for the Planet CEO.

Certifying with GoodWell gave us an objective way to understand and assess our organization's personnel practice and ecosystem. It was a simple process that yielded lots to celebrate and lots to learn–just like our broader work in the world.

GoodWell’s certification involves 11 metrics that are key to being a healthy and sustainable organization. The process gives leaders an objective view of their practices as an employer, as well as helping demonstrate their organization’s values to employees and the broader community.

GoodWell and 1% for the Planet look forward to a great partnership together.
