Transforming Production

Read our Better Production for a Living Planet case studies, which provide tangible examples of how whole sectors can move to more sustainable practices.
Why do we collaborate with businesses and the finance sector on better commodity production and sourcing to achieve our conservation goals?
  • Because working with timber logging companies can help save orang-utans, 70% of which live outside protected areas in Borneo
  • working with fish farmers can help save whales;
  • small innovations in how we cultivate sugarcane can help save reefs; and
  • spending less on growing more cotton is good for dolphins in the Indus river and leaves the farmers with more money in their pockets at the end of the harvest.
  • Sustainable investment helps save biodiversity 
With a population of roughly seven billion, we are using about 50% more resources than the Earth generates. By 2050 it is estimated that we will be close to ten billion people. We will all need food, clothes, shelter, water and energy.

Better commodity production leaves a smaller footprint on our natural resources and thus contribute to conservation of important ecosystems and to poverty alleviation.
