BURNABY, BC, – APRIL 6, 2017 -- ElementIQ joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to support non-profit organizations focused on the environment.
In the coming weeks, ElementIQ will be announcing the local non-profit organization it will be pledging resources to over the next year.
"Our member companies have donated more than $150 million to our environmental nonprofit partners to date. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We're excited to welcome ElementIQ to our global network," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
“We are thrilled to officially become 1% for the Planet members,” said Ramesh Ranjan, Digital Marketing Manager at ElementIQ. “We see collective contributions from private sector companies for the public good as a responsibility.”
Members of 1% for the Planet contribute one percent of annual sales directly to any of the approved non-profit environmental organizations in the network. Non-profits are approved based on referrals, track record, and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
“ElementIQ is proud to be working towards a healthier planet for all,” added Ranjan. “We all rely on drinkable water, healthy food, and clean air to survive. We are proud to be doing our part, for the planet.”
