New York, NY Dec.6, 2017 –Carbon Credit Capital LLC (“CCC”) joined 1% for the Planet in late November, committing to donate 1% of annual sales to support nonprofit organizations focused on the environment. We joined 1% for the Planet because this initiative is in line with our mission and internal corporate policy to reduce negative environmental impacts, and support positive environmental action.
Since its establishment, CCC has been committed to effectively helping corporations, universities, non-profits, and individuals reduce their carbon footprints, meet sustainability goals, and develop sustainability projects that support local communities. To achieve this mission, CCC has developed innovative programs such as our Carbon Neutral Checkout® program to help the business sector engage in carbon emissions reduction efforts at little or no direct cost. Furthermore, at the Corporate level, CCC actively seeks opportunities to partner with and support organizations that have mandates which complement our identified focus areas, including but not limited to establishing partnerships, providing free consulting help, and charitable donations. On behalf of CCC, Olivia Fussell, President of the Company has consistently donated to several environmental organizations, including Carey Institute of Ecosystem Studies, Central Park Conservancy, and Climate Central.
Through the 1% for the Planet membership, CCC firmly believes it can help systematically maximize our efforts and commitments to a new level of impact. As indicated by Kate Williams, the CEO of 1% for the Planet, “1% for the Planet connects dollars with doers to address the most pressing challenges, and we amplify those stories to create a larger impact on our planet. We are a powerful global model that generates new dollars and new engagement to support environmental nonprofits who are doing critical on the ground work.”
Reed Shapiro, CCC’s director of business development also believes, “Our partnership with 1% for the Planet has been great thus far. Kate and Carla have been such welcoming stewards of the movement, both in signing CCC up, but as well as in helping us strategize how we can use our resources and programs, and provide them to the broader 1% for the Planet community. As what seems to be the first carbon footprint management company in the community, we hope that the work we do can help others meet their goals in this space, all while highlighting our relationships with the Carey Institute, Central Park Conservancy, and Climate Central – all fantastic organizations that deserve due recognition for their own efforts. It’s just very exciting.”
