Active Navigation, the data privacy and governance company, today announced they have joined Pledge 1%, a global philanthropic movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Spearheaded by Salesforce, Atlassian, Rally and Tides, Pledge 1% encourages companies to donate 1% of product, equity, profit or employee time to causes of their choice.

Pledge 1%’s mission is to integrate giving back into the DNA of every business. Active Navigation is joining an impressive cohort of companies that are dedicated to philanthropic initiatives around the world. Like many Pledge 1% members, Active Navigation has experienced rapid growth, having recently closed their Series A funding. As the company continues to scale, the leadership team wanted to formalize its commitment to making a positive impact on local communities and lowering its carbon footprint.

“Active Navigation is delighted to become a Pledge 1% member and join other companies who are also passionate about building a sustainable future,” said Peter Baumann, CEO of Active Navigation. “Businesses can have a huge positive impact on society, and we feel strongly about ensuring that we do our share.
