Nokia - WWF Conservation Partner
WWF and Nokia partnership factsheet
WWF and Nokia have had a Global Partnership Agreement in place since 2003, which was first renewed in 2006.
The two partners have been working together on a number of issues, from raising the environmental awareness of Nokia employees to organizing the take-back and recycling of Nokia products.
With the aim to further strengthen Nokia’s environmental performance, support WWF’s conservation work and raise the environmental awareness of the over one billion people owning Nokia devices, the parties renewed their cooperation agreement in 2010.
Why We Have Partnered
WWF engages in strategic and innovative business partnerships with the world's largest international corporations and major national companies in order to help them reduce their ecological footprint and make a positive contribution to the environment. Partnerships are based on a common vision of a better future, as WWF believes that partners can achieve more by working collaboratively. WWF's approach to working with business is solutions-oriented, cooperative in its methods and challenging in its objectives.
With this cooperation, WWF and Nokia desire to learn from each other and develop mutually beneficial activities which will promote sustainable development. One particularly important area for cooperation is raising the environmental awareness of the over one billion people using Nokia devices worldwide.
How We Are Working Together
WWF will help Nokia conducting footprint assessments in different areas and setting environmental targets according to the findings. Especially powerful area of cooperation is creating downloadable content for mobile users to help people make sustainable choices in their everyday lives. Other areas of cooperation are piloting WWF’s Green Office Plus program in certain Nokia offices, giving expert info sessions for Nokia personnel, as well as organizing take back campaigns in different markets. Nokia supports WWF’s nature conservation and being a major supporter of WWF’s Living Himalayas Network Initiative is one example of that.
WWF, the global conservation organization, is one of the world's largest and most respected independent conservation organizations. WWF has a global network active in over 100 countries with almost 5 million supporters.
WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of the earth's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world's biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.
