The Planet Mark is partnering with Crowdfunder, the UK’s number one crowdfunding platform, to deliver sustainability funding to entrepreneurs and start-ups, enabling them to embed sustainability projects into their organisations.
Based on the success of The Planet Mark Start!, which offers innovative ideas to assist companies move to zero carbon and a sustainable economy, the partnership with Crowdfunder will help fund companies and projects using technology to make positive impacts to climate change.
Initially, The Planet Mark will share information across The Planet Mark and Crowdfunder communities through toolkits and online advisory sessions. It will host Carbon Clinics for Crowdfunder audiences seeking to raise sustainability funds, which will be an essential enabler for sustainability and net zero.
Steve Malkin, CEO and founder of The Planet Mark says, “Crowdfunder’s expertise and audience reach will help to unlock exciting projects. The introduction of Crowdfunder to The Planet Mark community will provide advice and, critically, access to wider funding and grants. The partnership will bring exceptional success in helping individuals and organisations access funding to ensure that collectively we build back better and support a regenerative economy in this crucial Decade of Action. The partnership will be empowering, but just as importantly, bring together like-minded individuals and organisations to share in the passion for a regenerative economy for society and the planet. The importance of a sustainable business and the role organisations play in creating thriving society and environment is at the core for all of us.”
Crowdfunder CEO Rob Love comments, “At Crowdfunder, we’re inspired by the amount of projects on our platform that are tackling climate change and are consciously trying to reduce their environmental impact. Our team, and the projects we support, are dedicated to saving the planet and committed to making positive, sustainable change. Our partnership with Planet Mark is an important one as we combine our mirrored values for continuous improvement and to be a collective force for good.”
