Commercial capital flows both depend on and shape the world´s commodity markets. Yet we face an extraordinary challenge. Over the next 40 years, land, energy, water, and weather constraints will place unprecedented pressure on mankind’s ability to access our most basic goods – food, fuel and fiber. The financial sector will face a new set of material and reputational risks, as well as opportunities, as the economy and society adjust.
To navigate these challenges head on, WWF works with a range of financial institutions in the debt and equity markets, asset management, and insurance. We leverage the insights from our more than 50 commodity experts, 100 country offices, as well as our partnerships with dozens of multi-national food, agri, and consumer goods companies, in order to deliver:
- Improved risk management, capacity, and financial performance in high-impact sectors
- Insights and data on key global trends
- Innovation breakthroughs in sustainable financial products
WWF works across markets such as oil palm
, and aquaculture
, among others, contributing to shaping emerging investment frameworks and opportunities for sustainable commodities.
