An alliance of businesses that contribute at least 1 percent of their net annual sales to researched and approved environmental organizations.  1% for the Planet is enabling businesses to take a lead role in being environmental stewards and to set an example for the rest of the business community. These companies embrace the notion that the sustainability of the natural environment is fundamental to the sustainability of business.
