We’ve got a global network of expert staff and tens of millions of supporters and followers around the world. But we’re tackling some of the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced, and we can’t do it alone.
To create change at the scale and speed our planet needs, everyone must be part of the solution. That’s individuals, governments and business.
Whether through direct operations or supply chains, business depends on natural resources. It needs energy. WWF works directly with companies and through industry-specific roundtables and platforms to reduce the ecological footprint of doing business, and to help the private sector be better stewards of shared natural assets.
We also advocate for policies and regulations that promote sustainability and protect people’s rights.
How does it work?
1. Driving sustainable business practicesWe use bilateral partnerships to change practices throughout a company’s operations and value chain.
2. Communications and awareness raisingWe raise awareness of key environmental issues and mobilise consumer action.
3. Philanthropic relationshipsWe raise money through these relationships for the conservation of key places and endangered species.
WWF works with business to:
What we focus on
Transparency and Accountability
Accountability to results and transparency to our supporters and our members are key to working in a constructive, cooperative manner with business.
