1% for the Planet membership announcement
Collins Hume has recently joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual revenue to support organisations focused on the environment.
“We wanted to announce that Collins Hume has officially joined 1% for the Planet starting this financial year,” said Partner Peter Fowler.
“It’s important to us that we witness first-hand the positive difference we make. We want to make a living legacy that will be timeless — one that’s about contribution as opposed to consumption.”
Collins Hume’s living legacy
Collins Hume can choose to partake in any number of lifestyle choices on our doorstep. We thrive in our locale, and our kids are healthy and strong. “Given this, it would be remiss of us not to play a small part in bringing basics such as clean drinking water, sustenance, education, and hope to people worldwide,” says Peter. “That’s the kind of legacy of which we can all be proud. To make that happen, we work both locally AND globally.”
"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 Collins Hume to our global movement," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
In addition to joining 1% for the Planet, Collins Hume is also working hard behind the scenes to achieve its climate-neutral certification.
“We are thrilled that by coming to work every day, we can add value to our clients’ business and lifestyle, whilst doing our bit to make the planet a healthier and happier place,” Peter added.
