As well as building sustainability into our projects and running our business in a way that’s as environmentally-friendly as possible, we are also members of 1% for the Planet. It means we’re committed to giving back at least 1% of our annual turnover to environmental non-profit organisations.
Founded in 2002, 1% for the Planet is a global movement that inspires support for the environment, bringing people together in order to maximise contributions to environmental causes. To date, 1% for the Planet members have given more than $250 million to environmental non-profits. Its network comprises more than 3,000 business members, an ever-growing core of individual members, and thousands of non-profit partners in more than 90 countries across the globe.
For Silveroc, being a member of 1% for the Planet is extremely important. It says who we are and what we stand for as a company. And importantly, it makes caring for the environment an official part of our operations.
