Global Climate Action Summit

The Global Climate Action Summit brings people together—live in San Francisco and virtually around the world—who are committed to fighting climate change.

It is up to all of us, everywhere, and at every level of society, to be part of the solution.

Join WWF in ushering in new era of action on climate change

On September 12-14, join WWF at the first-ever global climate conference for businesses, state and local government, civil society and citizens.

While we have a global roadmap to curb climate change in the years to come – the landmark Paris Agreement – even if all commitments under that agreement are met, we’d still fall well short of what’s needed to stave off the worst impacts of a rapidly warming world.

The Global Climate Action Summit is catalyzing a new wave of action from businesses and local leaders. Together, their actions can spur national governments around the world to accelerate their progress before it's too late.

The 30X30 Forests, Food and Land Challenge

One key solution to climate change is often overlooked: land and the way we use it to produce food, clothing, paper, fuel, and other products.  The way we use land for food and forestry causes about 24%--or about 12 billion tons—of our total annual greenhouse gas emissions. That’s too high.

When forests, grasslands, and other ecosystems are cleared to produce food, fiber, and fuel, they release carbon into the atmosphere and lose their capacity to pull carbon out of the atmosphere and store it in vegetation and soil.

How we use land – and the food, clothing, paper, and fuel products that come out of it – can no longer be part of the problem. It must be part of the solution.
