WWF Making Markets work for people and nature
WWF is the world’s largest environmental organization, with more than 1 300
projects in over 100 countries. In order to achieve market transformation WWF works with the leading companies in the food, fibre, and biofuel sectors to reduce their ecological footprints since they generate the greatest impact on priority ecosystems through the production of soft commodities. By showing that commodities can be produced at affordable costs with measurably reduced environmental impacts, and by creating significant demand for such products, WWF seeks to move entire commodity markets towards greater sustainability and deliver large-scale environmental outcomes. WWF achieves this by working with or setting up independent certification schemes that recognize these best practices, which makes it easier for both businesses and consumers to make responsible purchases. These certifications include: Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for timber, pulp and paper; Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) for palm oil; Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) for cotton; Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) for whitefish and tuna; and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) for farmed seafood.
The Sida funded Program
The WWF -Sida Partnership, Making Markets Work for People and Nature Phase II (2014-1018), supports WWF’s work to transform markets with an emphasis on improving livelihoods in developing countries, a priority for the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The WWF -Sida Partnership includes a results-based management (RBM) framework that is designed to demonstrate progress on increased sustainability of commodity production and supply chains over the course of the partnership, in a way that documents both actions attributable to WWF and broader changes catalyzed by these actions that are instrumental in shifting key commodity markets towards sustainability. Metrics and indicators relating to social issues including gender, poverty, and indigenous communities are of particular interest to Sida.
