Celebrating its 20th anniversary of inspiring people and organizations to give back to our environment and communities, 1% for the Planet hosted the
Global Summit 2022: Los Angeles event last March 15 to 17, 2022, a three-day conference to inspire more individuals and businesses to take environmental action, innovation, and connection. Industry leaders, environmental experts, and the next generation gathered to answer one not-so-simple question: What’s next?

Every year,
1% for the Planet hosts a Global Summit event for its members to come together and share inspiration to lead the movement forward. 1% for the Planet was founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, the founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, to ensure that our planet and future generations thrive.

Being a global organization, they utilize their influence and connections to support environmental nonprofits through membership and daily actions. 1% for the Planet members give at least 1% of their total annual revenues (for businesses) or annual salary (for individuals) through monetary, in-kind, and promotional or volunteer activities.

There was much to talk about and celebrate—but even more to do if we want to truly make an impact. We wrapped the 3-day event with an afternoon beach clean-up in Santa Monica hosted by the
Surfrider Foundation Los Angeles and 1% for the Planet.
