WWF works on commodities finance with major platforms such as the UNPRI, BEI, NCD, and CERES. We also partner and engage with approximately a dozen financial institutions worldwide, including Rabobank, Credit Suisse, Banco do Brazil, ICBC, Grupo BanColombia, Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) South Africa, ANZ, the Chinese Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC), and more. In addition, some of the public and civil society organizations we advise and collaborate with include:
For the International Finance Corporation, WWF developed GMAP (Global Map of Environmental and Social Risks in Agro-Commodity Production), a robust tool currently used for trade and short-term finance decisions by IFC’s bank partners. The GMAP scores environmental and social risks levels for more than 150 crop-country combinations based on over 70 advanced indicators.
WWF is collaborating with the PRI Investors to help them assess and manage water risks in the agro-commodity supply chains of their portfolio companies. We have leveraged 17,000 data combinations from the WWF-DEG Water Risk Filter and the WWF Supply Risk Analysis to help investors identify the riskiest supply chains and develop engagement strategies.
WWF is the trusted civil society advisor to the Soft Commodities Compact between the BEI banks and CGF companies. WWF has provided technical guidance and assisted with negotiations leading to the launch of this historic banking commitment on deforestation. WWF is also the only non-bank member of the Implementation Group, which will define good execution of the Compact.
