The SeaCleaners approved 1% For The Planet
8 March 2023
The SeaCleaners is an accredited member of the 1% For the Planet network, a scheme whose principle is simple: member companies undertake to donate 1% of their turnover to the environmental association of their choice.
1% may be a detail for you, but for us it means a lot.
The gesture and the percentage might seem small but have a strong impact on the supported structures. Above all, this system has the advantage of adapting to the financial capacities of all organizations, putting the efforts of a self-employed entrepreneur and a multinational on an equal footing. This is a principle that we at The SeaCleaners are very attached to, because as we recently explained, there is no such thing as a small gesture. And for small organizations, it is also a guarantee that they will be supported in what is generally their first corporate donation initiative. To date, small and medium-sized businesses represent 94% of the French members of 1% For the Planet.
How does it work?
Companies that decide to commit to this approach send their donation to the association of their choice and then, at the end of the fiscal year, send the corresponding tax receipt and their balance sheet to the organization, which thus validates the 1% proportion and certifies the company. The company can then proudly display the 1% For the Planet communication tools. It is also possible to make a direct contribution to the organization, which collects donations that are not earmarked by companies each year, in order to redistribute them during dedicated events . Finally, it is also possible to donate your 1% in kind or skills, up to half of the total value, the other half having to be a financial donation.
Thanks to our 2022 supporters!
In 2022, we were lucky enough to be supported by companies such as Textiss, known for its Freegun brand, Utopya, which manufactures spare parts to extend the life of electronics, or W2P Digital, our web agency without which this page would not exist! We take this opportunity to thank them once again for their commitment to us.
