WWF Climate Business Network
Working with global businesses to drive the transition to a net-zero economy

WWF is one of the largest conservation organisations in the world, with offices in almost 100 countries. We’re determined to stop the destruction of nature and help it recover. And we are uniquely positioned to deliver real change at scale. 

The Climate Business Network (CBN) is a network of ambitious and influential companies convened by WWF that supports the transition to a 1.5°C future. It is a global support network for national WWF partnerships. It helps drive businesses forward on their sustainability journey through engagement on key topics.

By joining the CBN, your company can make a difference in the fight for our world. You can collaborate with your business peers on the frontiers of corporate sustainability. 

Together we will address some of the key issues facing our planet and drive forward best practices on how to tackle them.

Our Members


We are proud to have a growing roster of members across multiple sectors and countries. 



Climate Business Network Member Benefits
By joining the CBN, businesses can collaborate with other WWF partner companies across the world to gain the knowledge and guidance needed to take credible, ambitious climate action. We convene companies in ways they can’t do themselves and use the power of the WWF brand to unite them.

Some of the main benefits of joining are:
  • Access to WWF’s wide range of knowledge and expertise across different areas of business sustainability (including unique expertise in climate, energy, forests, food systems, oceans and wildlife) through a mix of member-only community calls, public events and deep-dive sessions. 
  • A group hub, creating a safe space for member companies to learn and share experiences and challenges from the cutting edge of climate mitigation.
  • A catalyst for companies to aspire to do more. We act as the critical friend to create a powerful vision and support and facilitate the company to take bigger steps towards ambitious targets. 
  • Access to educational assets and preferable rates for a course from our partners at University of Cambridge.  
  • A series of members-only ‘community calls’ where we cover issues that are impacting business. These meetings give members opportunities to collaborate and learn from each other.

Join the CBN
This is not ‘just another group’. We work with our partners to drive their ambitions and work on meaningful climate action. 

To join the CBN, your company must:
  • Be in partnership with a WWF National Office. We do not work with companies that have no partnership agreements. 
  • Be committed to or have a target approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
  • Be a large national or international brand. 
If your business sees the opportunities in being part of the solution on climate change and is interested in partnering with WWF and joining the Climate Business Network to accelerate your journey, please contact your local WWF office or email us.
Fossil to Clean Campaign

Urging governments at COP28 to phase out fossil fuels and accelerate renewable energy

WWF is a supporting partner of the We Mean Business Fossil to Clean campaign which aims to send a clear message that businesses are taking action to accelerate the deployment of clean technologies and reduce emissions – and that they can go even further with bold political leadership at COP28 and beyond.

Over 130 companies (representing nearly $1 trillion in annual revenue) have signed an open letter to governments to show their support for this shift from fossil to clean. Add your company’s name and be heard by global policymakers.
