At Innovation Visual we are passionate about wildlife and its preservation. As part of our commitment we have signed up to donate a minimum of 1% of our entire turnover to environmental causes each year as members of the 1% for the Planet Organisation. We do this from the company profits so it does not affect the prices we charge to customers for our work. There are now more than 1200 businesses who between them have donated over $100 million to 3,300 non-profit organisations working on environmental causes through this charity.
At Innovation Visual we are very happy to have chosen our first charity to support David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) with our donations since joining the 1% for the Planet movement in 2012. David Shepherd is an internationally famous artist who has spent the majority of his life campaigning for environmental causes. Founder and director, Joanna has admired his work both as an environmental campaigner and as an artist for a large number of years. Joanna has been a long time supporter of DSWF and therefore they were a natural choice for our 1% for the Planet donations again for 2018.
David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is a charity funding key projects in Africa and Asia, working to save critically endangered mammals in the wild. DSWF supports anti-poaching and conservation projects throughout Africa and Asia making a real difference to the survival of these critically endangered mammals from painted dogs to tigers and from snow leopards to rhinos.
We have been donating to the Greek based turtle conservation charity MEDASSET that undertake valuable conservation and education work for turtles in the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to the donations we have made, we have also purchased a number of their gift products to give to our clients to support financially in this way too. Read more information about their turtle conservation activities.
We are a corporate supporter of the ARC Trust which works tirelessly to preserve the UK’s native species of amphibians and reptiles. Now in its tenth year the charity is working harder than ever to protect the habitats of Britain’s most elusive creatures. The charity also provides education and campaigns for changes to legislation, both in the UK and internationally, to protect our natural world.
