1% For The Planet

NEW YORK, NY (April 22, 2024) – RF|Binder, a fully integrated communications agency and consultancy headquartered in New York City, has joined 1% for the Planet, committing to donate 1% of annual revenues to  address the most urgent environmental issues of our time.

“One of RF|Binder’s most important Guiding Principles is that business can, and should, be a force for good. We believe that business leaders and brands have the power and the responsibility to take on initiatives that improve society at large,” said Amy Binder, CEO & Founder of RF|Binder. “Since our founding, we have been committed to having a positive environmental impact and partnering with like-minded organizations. From supporting the launch of SASB in 2011, to now working with dozens of organizations that have built sustainable business practices into their operations, amplifying sustainability initiatives and their importance has been core to our communications work. Becoming a 1% for the Planet member reaffirms and deepens this commitment and ensures that our success as an agency leads to a healthier planet.”

“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 vital work to increase giving and support on-the-ground action. We’re excited to welcome RF|Binder to our global movement,” said Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.

By contributing 1% of their annual revenues, thousands of 1% for the Planet members have raised millions in funding to support environmental partners around the globe. Partners are vetted and approved based on referrals, track record, and environmental focus. With over 5,000 environmental partners in the 1% for the Planet network, every member can find and support the causes that matter most to them.
