Why Wiser Partners with 1% for the Planet

During the busy Holiday season, there is a lot of pressure to buy presents and attend holiday parties, but it is also an important time of year to be thankful and to help those in need. Wiser Capital believes in giving back and is a proud member of 1% for the Planet. Being a member means that every year we donate 1% of our earnings to nonprofits that are striving to build a healthier planet. 1% for the Planet donates more than $100 million to thousands of environmentally conscious non-profits each year.

Wiser Capital joined 1% for these reasons:

Our Success Depends on a Healthy Planet. Wiser Capital strives to increase the amount of solar electricity installed on small to medium-size businesses each year. We know that our success depends on developing a community that is also striving for a healthy planet. 1% for the Planet is a forum that “connects businesses, consumers, and non-profits” and we are proud to be part of a community that is also working to increase sustainable energy.

We Believe in Giving Back. Wiser Capital knows that is it easy to talk about donating profits, but can be difficult to actually follow through. Joining 1% for the Planet is a concrete pledge to giving back and demonstrates our commitment to support our community and planet.

We Support Whole Environmental Health. Wiser’s mission to streamline and accelerate the solar energy marketplace pairs well with 1% for the Planet. We know that sustainable energy is just one piece of building a healthy and robust planet. Our membership with 1% for the Planet allows us to support sustainable land use, pollution reduction, clean water, and promote preservation of wildlife habitat.

We Need to Move Beyond the Choir. In addition to our 1% financial commitment, Wiser is also committed to engaging our partners in the 1% mission and goals. We envision a network of financing, construction and technology companies making commitments to the communities and places that support them. We know that by moving beyond the traditional ‘environmental’ companies, we can open up new sources of funding and magnify our positive impact.
