Corporate Responsibility

We feel fortunate each year to be able to work in partnership with some of the top companies and brands within their respective industries and in the world—companies that often have a significant impact on the people, communities and environments in which they operate.

As part of our corporate responsibility we invest (donate) each year in a number of different organizations—organizations that invest in people, communities and the environment. What organizations do we invest in? Given that we work with a wide number of companies across a diverse set of industries, we ask our clients for the names of organizations key to their businesses—and we invest in those organizations.

We understand our place in the world. We understand our responsibility. And we take it seriously—we invest in the future.

Since our founding we have donated to the 5 Gyres, Climate Collaborative, GLAAD, Boys and Girls Club of St. Helena and Calistoga, The Conscious Kitchen, The Siete Family Foundation, Big Blue & You, De Anza Force, The Southern Poverty Law Center, Breast Cancer Fund, Turning Green, Houston Food Bank, Children of Faith Missions, Northern Neck Food Bank, International Galapagos Tour Operators Association, New Door Ventures and many more organizations.

As an on-going practice, we expect to donate 5% of our gross revenues or 20% of our net earnings each year. In 2020, we donated 20% of our net earnings to charities and organizations doing good in the world. We also began offsetting our carbon footprint through the purchase of carbon offsets, effectively reducing our carbon footprint to close to zero. And in 2021 we officially became a Certified B Corporation™.
